Samsung printer under Lion

The Samsung ML-2010R is not a supported printer under OSX Lion. See <span id="INSERTION_MARKER"> (I don't seem to be able to post the whole URL)

<span id="INSERTION_MARKER">When you try to add your printer you need to select the generic postscript printer driver.

thank you centurion but in Lion you do not have many options for driver selection: either you accept the default driver or you choose among the OS system drivers (ML-2010 is not there) or it opens the finder. No way to specify a generic driver as it was in Leopard.

Thank you anyway

Unsupported Samsung Printer

I think you need to contact Samsung to see if another (supported) driver will substitute. Your printer is not listed in the Gimp lists either (
Good luck.

Have contacted Samsung: on their web site there is the correct driver and it works!
