Always try to google existing solutions first. This page suggests that you should get a ppd file to be installed on Fedora from Samsung UnifiedLinuxDriver.tar.gz , but apparently the link to the driver has been removed from the Samsung page. Fortunately there are still some active official Samsung links, see

If the printer you're referring is Samsung SCX-4016 you can install it like this.

Go to download file for Linux, then:

  1. Make sure that you connect your machine to your computer. Turn both the computer and the machine on.

  2. When the Administrator Login window appears, type in root in the Login field and enter the system password.

  3. Download and extract the driver [root@localhost root]#tar xzf [Downloaded File Name(XXXX.tar.gz)]

  4. The driver will be extracted as ''cdroot'' folder in current path.

  5. Execute installation program. [root@localhost root]#./cdroot/autorun

  6. When the welcome screen appears, click ''Next'' and proceed installation.
