Hi Paul, thanks for the reply, I've screwed around with Foo2qpdl and can make it work in CUPS but only to print a test page (which it does correctly) but the age old problem of creating a desktop printer object returns as it needs a "rastertosamsungspic" file which OS/2 can understand. I've tried to "dummy up a ppd" like I did with the Sansung clp-310, which I eventually got to work, but "no cigar" with this CLP-365w!

If the cups test print works with foo2qpdl, why can't you use the PPD file from /cups/etc/cups/ppd and import it using instpdr for use with a desktop object?

Hey Paul, a little clarification! I was able to print a "test sheet" on the Samsung 365w using CUPs installed on WSEB running in a virtual box on a SuSE Server11 machine. The printer is located on another machine on the LAN running SuSE 12.2 with CUPs and sharing the Samsung printer. I haven't had time available to mess with this lately but hopefully this next week I'll be able to get back to trying to make the printer work with eCS. Should I make any progress, I'll post it!
Thanks again for the help.
