This printer is reportedly a rebranded Samsung ML-2165 (or perhaps more accurately a ML-2165W since it includes WiFi). Dell provides a proprietary driver. It was successfully installed on Ubuntu 14.04. However, this only supports i386 and x86_64 architectures and won't work on devices like raspberry pi, openwrt, android, etc. Able to print test page. This driver installer installes a B1160w.ppd file that references a proprietary binary pstospl. Tested using "Samsung ML-2165" and splix. Test page looks same as from dell propiretary driver. Don't know if ML-2165 will appear on printer model list before splix is installed. The actual ppd refers to cupsfilter rastertoqpdl which appears to be part of splix. Did not test foomatic/gdi but there is a good chance it would work with a suitable ppd as that is what my Samsung ML-1710 printers which also speak SPL are using. But configuring printer queue as samsung ML-1710 foomatic/gdi does not work; nothing printed. Did not test samsung proprietary driver, probably very similar to dell. Did try choosing several Dell printers with similar 11xx model numbers before trying dell proprietary driver. Did not work. Paper said "INTERNAL ERROR - please use the proper driver" I was able to install two print queues on the same machine, one using splix and the other using the proprietary driver (note, also had another samsung printer using splix). Since this is a small printer and I anticipate using it as a portable with different computers, I affixed a label to the printer that says it is a "rebranded samsung ML-2165" and "sudo apt-get install splix" package printer-driver-splix replaced splix but comes with a transitional dummy package splix. Print jobs (or at least test pages) appear to be lost if printer is not awake; this may lead you to believe a driver is not working when it actually is. Note: Between various drivers, pulled power cord, reinserted, and turned printer on.
