    Was running Ubuntu 9.04 and my Samsung SCX4826FN MFD worked perfectly.

    Replaced that computer with a new 64 bit Intel computer, and installed Ubuntu 10.04, but cannot successfully install the MFD. On the first attempt, when I tried to print, I got a screen message saying,

    I tried reinstalling and in this new configuration. When trying to print a test page, it prints a series of faint straight lines over several pages.

    (BTW, both of these install attempts are still in my printer list with different names if I need to go back to either of them.)

    Tried upgrading the older computer and installing the printer on it due to urgent printing needs, but no cigar there either.

    At this Samsung support page

    http://www.samsung.com/us/support/downloads/SCX-4826FN/XAA

    there is a 32 MB unified driver download and these instructions:

    I have attempted to follow the above, and I assume that I need only be concerned with the "Ubunutu OS Install", but there are lots of choices to be made during the install process and I have no idea if I am entering the right choices. Samsung support says they don't support linux and wash their hands of it.

    Can anyone help me with this, please? I badly need to print out some things. TIA.
