Adding a Samsung ML-1865w laser printer to Ubuntu

Samsung ML-1865w laser printer is a good alternative for those who print much more in black and white than in color. I was trying to add it to Ubuntu, but it was not found automatically by Ubuntu. So I need to add its driver manually, following the steps below:

# enter in a temporarty directory
cd /var/tmp

# downloads the unified linux driver
wget http://org.downloadcenter.samsung.com/downloadfile/ContentsFile.aspx?CDSite=UNI_HK_EN&CttFileID=3182440&CDCttType=DR&ModelType=N&ModelName=ML-1865W&VPath=DR/201106/20110602161236937/UnifiedLinuxDriver_0.98.tar.gz

# unconpressing driver 
tar -xzf UnifiedLinuxDriver_0.98.tar.gz

# remove compressed drive
rm UnifiedLinuxDriver_0.98.tar.gz

# enter 
cd cdroot

# run autorun -> It will open a window -> Next -> I accept -> Next -> Add user: vianna -> Next -> Mark "Disable LPT support" -> Wait installing pr
sudo ./autorun

# remove install directory
cd ..; rm -rf cdroot

See ya!
