Printer installation

Hello, I recently purchased Linux supported Samsung ML-1675 printer. My Ubuntu 11.04 only recognises ML-1660 range in it's native data base which only prints an error page.



Samsung support has pointed me to the "unified driver"




Code:




 http://www.samsung.com/uk/support/model/ML-1675/SEE-downloads


After downloading the driver it places a tar file called "cdroot" on my root directory. When I extract the tar I point the gnome driver installation utility to the driver




Code:




System >>> administration >>> printing >>> I click on add printer >> check "provide PPD file >> I use the browse option to point to target file..


I select a file called "auto run" and get this error




Code:






Failed to read PPD file.  Possible reason follows:

/home/siawacsh/Downloads/samsung/cdroot/autorun: FAIL

      **FAIL**  Unable to open PPD file - Missing asterisk in column 1 on line 1.

                REF: Page 15, section 3.2.






The other folder is called linux. It has many subdirectories which lead to nowhere..



One of the subdirectories is x86_64. I am running a 64 bit platform. Inside that folder there is another folder called install. Inside this child folder there an executable called vendormenu. I give it write permission try to run



getting this error




Code:






Failed to read PPD file.  Possible reason follows:

/home/siawacsh/Downloads/samsung/cdroot/Linux/x86_64/install/vendormenu: FAIL

      **FAIL**  Unable to open PPD file - Line longer than the maximum allowed (255 characters) on line 1.

                REF: Page 15, section 3.1.

        WARN    File contains a mix of CR, LF, and CR LF line endings!




I thank you in advance
