Print to a Samsung CLP-500 via alternate drivers Install
I couldn't get this printer to print using the Samsung drivers. So I then used the Xerox Phaser 6100 drivers, which is the same printer, and they worked fine.

My new CLP-510 (same printer with networking card installed, I think) worked fine out of the box with the CD drivers, but it's nice to know of alternate solutions just in case.

I tried this and the Xerox drivers don't work for me in 10.3.8.

Mac OS X 10.4 - did not work for me either. Samsung support is totally broken in 10.4 - yes, I have an official copy, from Apple.....

I have a CLP-510N and it does not work via the BonJour setup or ipp. Printer Setup Utility finds the printer via BonJour and recognizes it as a CLP-510 (after I installed the driver), but when I print cupsd is unable to find "myprinter.local" via mdns (had to turn on cups debugging in /etc/cups/cupsd.conf.

When I set it up with IPP in Printer Setup Utility, it connects and starts sending the document to the printer, then fails on an "Invalid command" or something like that.

On the plus side I was able to get it working as an LPR/LPD printer. Its not ideal, since it means more steps on each computer, at least its working.

Well, I tried using the driver for the Xerox Phaser 6100 which worked for a little while, then I started getting the error "Process "Rastophaser6100" terminated unexpectedly "Signal 10". Now I'm using the Samsung CLP-510 driver which is still on their website under Tiger and it's printing fine with all features.

Thank you ever so much!! I have a CLP-500 and was about to give it up as lost for lack of a driver that would work under Tiger. Now I can print from my new G5 thanks to you, after getting the CLP-510 driver.

Search Google for SPLIX Mac OS X drivers

These seem to work well, are fast, and are open source, and best of all, they work for network printing too if the printer is on a Print Server.

hi all, i had no trouble with this printer with 10.6: downloaded the official Samsung driver (v3.00) from http://www.samsung.com/us/support/detail/supportPrdDetail.do?menu=SP01&prd_ia_cd=&prd_mdl_cd=&prd_mdl_name=CLP-500, installed, all worked fine including changing the DPI settings. no access to the Duplex settings though.
