Failed To Print - Filter Failed -

Postby Kenshin Himura » 2020-01-17 03:53

Hello Comrades. I am facing an issue here. I have install drivers for my "xpress m2026 samsung" and CUPS , but im getting an error while trying to print which referring into "filter failed". In a research i did it has to do with the ghostsript. They suggest to delete a file and then run a command, i idid both of them but nothing happened. Do you ve any thoughts about how can i start using my printer?

It looks like there are 2 options:

1) Samsung's binary driver. I would not have much confidence in this driver for the following reason: HP bought Samsung's printer business and I do not have much confidence that HP would update the driver for newer Debian versions.

2) The SPLIX drivers. This would be my first choice because the package is in the Buster repositories and appears to have been patched beyond version 2.0.0. It should also pull in any necessary dependencies.

That gives you an idea that HP/Samsung did not build their driver for Debian. The opt directory is an SuSe construct.

For future users with this issue, the SPLIX drivers should work out of the box.
