How to install a Samsung ML-191x 252x Series printer with AirPrint support on a Raspberry Pi

This guide will focus on getting the Samsung ML-191x 252x Series printer up and running with AirPrint support on a Raspberry Pi.

Requirements

  • Raspberry Pi 2 model B (or later)
  • A printer (e.g. Samsung ML-191x 252x Series printer)

CUPS

Let us start by updating the package repository

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get upgrade

Next we will install the CUPS printing system:

$ sudo apt-get install cups

Splix

We will also need to install the Splix package which contains drivers for the Samsung ML-1915 printer. Note, this step is important because the drivers for this specific printer do not appear to exist anywhere else that I have seen.

$ sudo apt-get install printer-driver-splix 

We will also need to append the supplementary group lpadmin to our users login.

$ sudo usermod -append -G lpadmin pi

Modify the CUPS config file by telling it to accept any remote connections.

$ sudo cupsctl --remote-any

Restart the CUPS service for the changes to take effect

$ sudo /etc/init.d/cups restart

AirPrint

In order to add AirPrint support so that we can print from anywhere, and more importantly from our smart phone, we need to install the avahi-discover package.

$ sudo apt-get install avahi-discover

Your printer should now be ready to accept jobs from your Raspberry Pi.
