Connect Ubuntu to a Samsung M2022w printer

Setting up your Samsung M2022w wireless printer can be a pain if you don’t know where to look – luckily someone has taken that pain upon themselves so you don’t have to.

The Samsung Unified Linux Driver Repository is the place to get your Samsung driver for Ubuntu (or Linux in general).

Start by adding the repository – in Ubuntu Terminal:

sudo wget -O - http://www.bchemnet.com/suldr/suldr.gpg | sudo apt-key add -

Then refresh your updates cache:

sudo apt-get update

Install the driver:

sudo apt-get install suld-driver2-1.00.06

Setting up the printer

With the driver installed you can now set up the printer – find the Printers applet, click ‘Add’.

printer-setup-1

Open ‘Network Printer’, after a short while a whole bunch of options will appear like below. Click on the option titled ‘Samsung M2022 Ser…’ and then ‘Forward’.

printer-setup-2

Some screens will pass that are very self explanatory, you really can’t go wrong. The last screen allows you the option to do a test print, feel free.

printer-setup-3

Click ‘OK’.
