Autodetected: , USB port, 11.1 rpm install, install the two rpm(s) and follow the instruction here about CUPS >= 1.2 Brother Solutions Center : Brother Driver for Linux Distributions
Autodetected: , USB port, 10.0, 10.1 10.2, 10.3, 11.0, 11.1 rpm install, great as local usb printer and Linux print server, using either Samba or IPP. Read the article SDB:Brother HL2040 or this external HowTo and Notes.
For openSUSE 11.2 - Brother drivers don't work. Try this HowTo for USB printer server (eg. D-Link DVA-G3670B).
Autodetected: , USB port, 11.4 rpm install, Brother drivers seems to work so pick them up from here.  All features should work, as it did with mine incl. auto duplex feature. Make sure to uninstall first any old driver that is installed previously.
If, for some reason, you have the problem that the duplex does not work, you need to try setup the printer via console. Doing that is easy. Just open your terminal, log in an root and load yast. It seems that yast over gui does not allow to setup specific settings. This should work, as it does in my case.
Since the Brother driver does only have two dpi settings, you can alter the setting to add the 300dpi to the ppd file which is located in /etc/cups/ppd/HL2240D.ppd. Edit it with you favorite editor.
For people that have printing problems i recommend to install the driver this way. Open a terminal and do su. Then type these commands in it. Just make sure you are in the same location as the driver.
- rpm -ihv --nodeps hl2240dlpr-2.1.1-1.i386.rpm
- rpm -ihv --nodeps cupswrapperHL2240D-2.0.4-2.i386.rpm
- rpm -qa | grep -e hl2240dlpr-2.1.1-1.386.rpm -e cupswrapperHL2240D-2.0.4-2.i386.rpm
After this open your browser and install and configure the printer via cups. Address should be this. http://localhost:631/printers/ Your printer should be listed. All you need to do is configure it and link the printerdriver that fits best in cups. I did the 2170W driver which works well. After that you should have perfect results.

Autodetected: , USB port, 11.1 rpm install (1-click)  search the printer in the list...then click to the two drivers, which are in rpm format. Install both. The printer is full supported. Have fun!
Autodetected: (on 11.3), USB port, Parallel port, Ethernet port. If you do not already have it, get the printer description file BR5380_2_GPL.ppd.gz from Brother and copy it to /usr/share/cups/model/Brother/HL-5380DN-Postscript.ppd.gz. No further drivers are required. On the printer LCD control panel select BR-Script_3 driver as Emulation. This printer is fully supported, including paper tray selection. When connected as a network printer you have full control pointing a browser at port 80 of the printer IP.
Autodetected: , USB port, 11.0 RPM install Requires LPR driver and CUPS wrapper. Brother provides installation instructions. This page also has instructions on how to install the scanner, but I haven't tried them.
Autodetected: , Ethernet, 11.0 RPM install Requires LPR driver and CUPS wrapper. Brother provides installation instructions. On x86_64 system you must create a symlink from file installed at /usr/lib/cups/filter/brlpdwrappermfc465cn /usr/lib64... RPM sets up the print queue for USB, change to network URI socket://HOST:9100.
When installed as wireless network printer it is not auto detected.
For drivers and instructions see support at Brother MFC-J280W.
For basic setup use YaST > Printer. Use "Print via Network" and "Connection Wizard" button. In next screen use "Access Network Printer or Printserver Box via" and from 3 choices use LPD setup. URI is
where <printer_IP> is IP address assigned to the printer.

Tested with SUSE Linux 12.1, USB connection only. It works if you follow these instructions.
Tested with openSUSE 12.2, WiFi connection works. First need to install drivers from Brother support page and then follow their instructions.
Select model Canon BJC-7100 and change PPD file to Foomatic/bjc800.
Works with drivers shipped with openSUSE (gutenprint). By default, the colors are fade. To resolve it, set the driver option "Color Model" to CMYK instead of the default RGB. Other fine tunings are possible with the driver.
The Canon proprietary drivers do not work on openSUSE 12.2.
Works with driver packages from Canon. Yet to be tested with drivers shipped with openSUSE.
USB, openSUSE 11.0.
Selected MP180 from the available drivers list and it seems to work perfectly. Did not test scanning.
Selected MP180 from available printers and this worked OK as this is a multi function printer the scanner needs configuring separately. Though the Pixma SANE driver exists have not yet tried it.
Canon offers the drivers from their website. However, those drivers are extremely limited: there is no option to print in draft or quality mode, to use duplex printing, to print in greyscale etc.
The printer is autodetected but there are no drivers from cups. On the Canon website there are Linux drivers available. With Opensuse 11.1 and 11.4 they work fine. There is even a rpm package for the scanner with the application Scangearmp.
This printer is autodetected but there are no cups drivers available by default. Follow the procedure mentioned in the forums to get it working both wirelessly and via USB.
The scanner works as well and is mentioned in the same procedure.
Selected "BJC-8200 Foomatic/bj8pa06n" from the list, printer works ok.
See Canon PIXMA MP HOWTO for details.
Autodetected: , USB port. Driver installed automatically under openSUSE 11.0 and printer works "out of the box". Not so under 11.1: printer is autodetected and identified correctly but no driver is found.
The following comments were from a previous post:
- I am using iP 3000 Canon printer with all of following drivers taken from the list:
- ( presently installed Opensuse 10.3, formerly Suse 10.0 and openSuse 10.2 with same results
- 1 BJC7000-Foomatic/bjc800
- 2 BJC7004-Foomatic/bjc800
- 3 BJC7100-Foomatic/bjc800, all offering free choice of papersupply,
- 4 BJC8200-Foomatic/bj8pa06
- Testprints and daily printwork are satisfactory.
- 2 features are missing:
- * indication of remaining colour level
- * reverse side printing
- Testing BJC 3000 showed prints that were out of scale.
- Sept.11.2008: I added Modell Pixma iP 3000 from the list.
- Result: Correct size,correct scale and reverseside ( duplex )printing is now possible.
- Same results after having installed open Suse 11.0. and on openSUSE 11.1.kde3.5.10
- (For openSUSE 11.1.:when installing with Yast the driverlist will appear only when entering just <Canon> instead of taking the autodetected printerversion)
As of March 2010 open SUSE 11.2 and Gnome :with Yast -if not autodetected just set Canon-with Pixma iP3000 cups+Gutenprintdrivers 5.0.2 and 5.0.2simplified are offered. Indication of colourlevel is not given.
Sept.2010: o.S.11.3 (KDE4.4.4 +Gnome):with Yast printer selfdetected , 4 drivers are offered, features as with o.S.11.2.
May 2011: o.S.11.4 (Gnome 2.3.2 + KDE4.6 ) : selfdetected , 2 Gutenprint drivers offer( ed , features as with 11.3 (all except indication of colourlevel ) I suggest to insert a new printhead instead of buying a new printer, it saves a lot of installation.
Autodetected: , USB port, Working with Canon's Filters
for 32 bit: pdc_2: recommend you go here
and firstly download Canon Inkjet Print Filter Ver. 2.60 for Linux (Operation guide)[Explanation of the iP4200 operation (html file). Download as tar.gz to your desktop; right-click; open with file roller; select extract from file roller; a new folder on your desktop should be created; open that folder; open the next folder (ip4200; look in menu folder; select "guide_conte.htm" and it will open in your web browser; read the instuctions; (several times); follow them exactly;
then download the rpm Common package and the rpm Package for iP4200; the instructions will tell you to install the common first, and then the ip4200 package;
PIXMA iP4200 == 64 bit
- try Gutenprint or the Canon drivers; (Canon as detailed above);
for more guidance; (you will need to make a symbolic link from the 64bit libraries to the 32bit libraries)log in as root: the # at the beginning signifies root log in # ln -s /usr/lib/cups/filter/pstocanonij /usr/lib64/cups/filter
montfinal edited his ppd file: if you use the above symbolic link, that should work
Alternatively, to get the 32-bit drivers to work on an x86_64 OS, do the following:
- 1) Load 32-bit RPMs for: popt, gdk, gtk, gtk-devel, libxml, libpng, libglib, libgmodule
- 2) Load i586 RPM: libpng3
- 3) Add a link BEFORE installing printer drivers. The install will create directories /usr/lib/cups/backend, driver and filter
ln -s /usr/lib64/cups /usr/lib/cups
- 4) Install printer drivers (versions may be different) NOTE: libxml dependencies will be met by the 64-bit libxml libraries
rpm -i --nodeps cnijfilter-common-2.60-3.i386.rpm rpm -i --nodeps cnijfilter-ip4200-2.60-4.i386.rpm
- 5) /etc/init.d/cups restart
- 6) Use "Yast- Hardware- Printer" to add your printer
- 7) Use "Yast- Hardware- Printer- Edit- All Options..." to set "papersize=letter"
P.S. For diagnostics, set "loglevel debug" in /etc/cups/cupsd.conf, restart cups, "tail -f /var/log/cups/error_log", and print
Autodetected: , Print Server, 11.1
Download Canon driver from Canon's Website. Install the required RPM for the series of printer as root in the terminal (rmp -Uvh ./cnijfilter-ip4600series-3.00-1.i386.rpm) and if the printer is local the common file (cnijfilter-common-3.00-1.i386.rpm). This should add everything you require. For a print server install, ignore the common RPM file and extract the common .tar.gz file. Used CUPS via web browser (localhost:631) to install and add PPD location manually. Photo printing from top try, normal printing from envelope tray and CD printing yet to be tested.
Pixma iP4850==autodetected on oS 11.2, oS 11.3, oS 11.4,all with KDE and Gnome Load Canon-drivers from their website (iP 4800 series for Debian and Redhat) and install into Yast. Testprint produces the wellknown CUPS Printer Test Page. The same is working under o.S.12.1.(installed on Oracle VMBox Win7)
Indication of colourlevel is not available. dpi 600; other features as with windows are available (Page size,paper type,paper source-cassette,rear tray or automatic-,Duplex/reverseside printing ).
It's not possible to print envelopes neither separately nor in combination with letters: the address- and senderfields are not printed at their proper positions or are turned by 90°. To obtain correct envelopes You have to swing to Windows. ---Using Libre Office 3.4 on Linux and on Windows likewise.----
Did solve the problem be changing the menu-entries of >Properties of printer >Device> printer language from PDF which is default to Postscript ( level of driver ).

Autodetected: , USB port, Not working! Works only with TurboPrint drivers =>1.94. Tested on openSUSE 10.1 and 10.2.
Autodetected: will not work as networked printer in opensuse 10.3 or 11.0. works connected with USB cable & using Canon PIXMAiP5200-cups+gutenprint v5.0.1 driver (PIXMA_iP5200_gutenprint.5.0.sim-en.ppd.gz).
Canon LBP series
for a 32 bit OpenSuse install
the printer drivers WILL work; if you follow the Canon instructions;
but firstly install the howto guide; guide-capt-1.8xE.tar.gz from the above page; I suggest downloading to your desktop; open with file roller, and then extract from the file roller menu to your desktop; that creates a new folder, called guide-capt-1.8 and inside that click on manual_contents.html and an excellent howto opens up in your web browser; read it several times;
then follow the instructions; item 5 talks of "Register the printer (PPD) with the print spooler." You need to know the name of the ppd file; use gnome search or the KDE equivalent; some end in J, others K; identify yours; likely to be in /usr/share/cups/model; eg for LBP5000 it will be CNCUPSLBP5000CAPTK.ppd
continue to follow the instructions; Canon say in item 7 "Start ccpd daemon.Enter the following command. # /etc/init.d/ccpd start" this gives it for this use of the printer
and very importantly: Note:* It would be convenient to set ccpd daemon to start automatically when Linux starts up. You do this manually each time by typing in the above command, or for automatic, have suse insert the service
sudo insserv -v ccpd

Stylus Colour C44UX
Printer works fully. Is fast. Has some problems with PDF files opened via Adove Reader version 8. My printer is installed via a network share, provided by a Buffalo NAS drive. No utilities for monitoring ink levels, cleaning printer heads or performing a nozzle check.
Stylus Color C45
Stylus Color C62
Default printing is slower than default printing in Windows, but it can be changed using YaST Printer or dialog Properties from Print menu item in every application. This is probably valid for all other Epson printers in Stylus Color series. For maintenance, like query ink levels, can be used escputil that is included in distribution. For more information type escputil --help.
Stylus Color C64
Works good, auto-detected by YaST, but slower printing than on Windows.
Stylus Color C66
SUSE Linux versions: 10.2
Use TurboPrint proprietary driver for full resolution printing.
Stylus Color C70

Stylus D 68 Photo Edition
Stylus D 120
Although there are official drivers out for it, see  they do not work. You can get the print function working through the use of the DX3850 drivers but be warned it's behaviour is strange. Often it will shut itself down when it's prompted to print and then start the printing when turned on again. I doubt the ink level warnings are working properly so it might damage the printheads if you keep printing with a low ink level. Scanner does not work at all.
only works with drivers (RPM) from Epson site
Note: When used with stp-escp2-c68.5.0.ppd the printer works quite well until it enters in standby mode. After that you need to turn off the printer and then turn it back on.
autodetected: Does not work with the drivers supplied with OpenSuse 11.2. It requires Gutenprint drivers newer than the supplied 5.0.2. You can get the most recent release from OpenPrinting. Just download the RPM and install it with rpm -i openprinting-gutenprint-5.2.4-1lsb3.2.i486. Make sure you have the lsb package installed. Once you have the Gutenprint drivers ready, use the CUPS webinterface to add the Stylus S20 because yast fails with some obscure error messages.
Autodetected: works well using on Suse 11 & 11.1 with the avasys drivers. Use escputil for print head cleaning, etc Scanner works well with iscan. Card Reader for works well for SD Cards. CF, xD, MS and PictBridge not tested.

In Opensuse 11.4 if is not autodetected click Add if it is autodetected click Edit then Yast will then detect the drivers. Once it does retrieve the driver info make sure to select the hpijs driver if it doesnt already do that. Also check to see if Default box is checked on the driver page, this will make it the Default printer for HP Toolbox. For the scanner YAST>Scanner is Autodetected just click the OK.

HP Photosmart C4100 All-in One
HP Photosmart Premium C309a All-in One
Connected as wireless network printer and did not test USB nor Ethernet direct interface autodetect. Wireless works well. Successfully setup using YaST for both wireless printing and wireless scanning on openSUSE 11.1 to 11.3. Successfully prints over wireless on CD/DVDs with Gimp.
Works perfectly. (incuding duplex and optional paper slot)
Unfortunately yast doesn't find a driver for the printer. (see details below) The trick is to
- get the ppd-file for the printer from http://www.linuxprinting.org
- start the web interface to cups: http://localhost:631/
- install the printer using "Manage Printers"
- if asked for the printer name, use the ppd file (loaded with the button - cups only listed the newer FS1030D model)
Details for yast: The printer is detected, but no driver found.
Trying to install PPD from vendor CD: PPD seems to be parsed and accepted, but yast still complains about missing driver.
It does not work with its own driver, but works just fine with "Optra E" one.
There is no Linux driver for that printer model, but experimentation shows, that it work great with "Optra E+" drivers.
Plugged it in and it autodetected. This Lexmark is branded as a DELL P1500. The correct driver was installed.
For optimal printing, extract the Windows PostScript driver for the .PPD file. In YaST2 printer setup it gives an error, but if you setup at http://localhost:631 it will work. Duplexer, Envelopes & 1200 DPI work fine. For envelopes in OpenOffice define page setup and printer setup for #10 envelope, MP feeder source & feed envelope as indicated on printer.
SUSE Linux doesn´t provide a driver for the Lexmark Z602 - however, there´s a [RedHat Linux 9.0 driver]
Installation Procedure (SUSE Linux 10.0, SUSE Linux 10.1)

Autodetected: using Yast printer module or CUPS, USB to Centronics adapter; Omni driver suffers frequent errors, KX-P2123 Foomatic works well, raw queue gives best output but pitch and font must be set on front panel and care must be taken to avoid sending postscript jobs as this will result in the raw ascii PS commands printing rather than the document; OpenSuSE 11.3
10.3 Installed perfectly with Samsung-supplied linux driver.
Driver included on setup disk problematic for pre-10.2 Use ML200 instead.
openSUSE 10.3 fully supports printer using CUPS' own ML2010 drivers. My printer was connected via the Netgear WGPS606 printer server. Configuration is as follows: Protocol: lpd://nnn.nnn.nnn.hhh/L1 (where nnn.nnn.nnn.hhh is the printer server's IP address); L1 is the USB port number on the print server.
Use the ML2010 drivers that are installed by default and it works straight out of the box.
Installed Unified Linux Drivers from printer setup CD, then configured printer with CUPS. Works great! But I think it's worth mentioning the security warning: http://openprinting.org/show_printer.cgi?recnum=Samsung-ML-2240.
Auto detected and configured in YAST in 10.3.
Autodetected: . 10.3 -- Printer was not connected directly to computer. Samsung provided all required drivers and utilities. Utility did require the input of the root password in order to read printer from network

works well by copying the clp550n.ppd file to /usr/share/cups/model/samsung and setup as new usb or network conected printer with yast. (the 192.168.1.xxx address can be obtained from the printer menu).
the samsung CD setup works but dosn't always find the networked printer (autosetup with USB connection not checked). if the auto setup finishes but fails to find the network address, it can be fixed by editing the printer with yast or by setting up as a new printer with yast and using the CLP-610splc.ppd file from the CD.
It works in OpenSuse 10.2 and 10.3 with Samsung Unified Driver 2.00.97. In OpenSuse 10.3 you MUST mount usbfs. In OpenSuse 11.0 edit a line for usbfs in fstab and mount it in a console or by a shell script
It works in openSUSE 12.3 with Samsung Unified Driver 4.00.39. Please install before cups and libstdc++33 packages. To run the installer, use:

Works with openSUSE 10.2 out of box.
Also works on openSUSE11.0 and 11.1 after loading Xerox supplied ppd. (using on lastest 10.3 also)
For openSUSE 11.0 and later doesn't work with the default PPD. Select Samsung ML-1710's PPD. (Not the one listed as "GDI", but the other, "1.0"). With that driver, it works perfectly.
