The samsung filter ppmtospl2 is incompatible with newer Linux distributions. The problem has been reported with RedHat v9 and Mandrake (now Mandriva) “Cooker” (around version 9.1).
This is likely a library error, but may lie in the binary itself. There is no known solution. There are two possible solutions you can try.
First, try using the free gdi ghostscript driver.
ppmtospl2 should start working. This requires using
Second, you can try to load the
ppmtospl2 script by preloading old
libraries. First, obtain the old libraries that are needed. These
ld-linux.so.2 library and and change all
instances of the string
/lib/ld-smsng.so.2.Very Important: The new name of the library (
must be exactly the same length as the old name
the binary will not work anymore.
Then copy your old
set the environment variable
LD_PRELOAD to point to the new library directory.
Now try to run the filter.
One problem is that LPP doesn't call the
lp program with the
correct arguments. It tries to issue
/usr/bin/lp -d samsung -n 1 -p 50 -o Collate=True /tmp/lppgzLDQR
-p are not valid options.
One solution is to use a small script to remap the options. First,
lp program to
cupsdoprint. Second, download this
script, copy it to where the
lp program was, and make it executable.
