Currently Being ModeratedSep 15, 2010 10:27 AM (in response to cricketernot)They usually are in the /Library/Printers/ folder. Installed drivers may also be found in the /Home/Library/Printers/ folder. The driver folder should have a "normal" name involving "Samsung" in the name.
Exactly why do you need to know the location? The driver installer should place it wherever it belongs.Mac Pro 2.66 Ghz; MBP Unibody; MBP C2D 2.33 Ghz; MBP 2.16 Ghz, Mac OS X (10.6.4), iMac C2D 17"; MB 2.0 Ghz; iPad 32G; 80GB iPod Video; iPod Touch; iPod Nano 2GB
Currently Being ModeratedSep 16, 2010 1:10 AM (in response to Kappy)Thanks. I see Home/Library/Printers/Samsung ML-1610.app (610 KB) I suppose that's my printer driver. In the main upper level Library folder I see what look like the drivers included in OS X (does not include mine). Why do I want to know? Oh in case I want to kill it/change it, I'm not using an official driver because there isn't one. I wish Samsung would give some tips suggesting trying other drivers, bet a lot of people have bought a new printer unnecessarily.20" Intel iMac mid-2007, 3GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.6.4), Windows 7 on BootCamp
Currently Being ModeratedOct 25, 2010 9:15 AM (in response to cricketernot)I've got a similar problem with an ML-1710P: I need to re-install a driver and have found Samsung to be somewhat less than enthusiastic about supporting Apple machines.
There is a driver download facility online (http://www.samsung.com/sg/support/detail/supportPrdDetail.do?menu=SP01&prdia_cd=06010400&prd_mdl_cd=&prd_mdlname=ML-1710) and it does download a DMG file which works, but it doesn't work! It assures me it's successfully completed installation of in a folder named 'usr' somewhere on 'OSX', but the printer still doesn't show up in 'Print and Fax' under 'System Preferences', nor can I find any folder named 'usr'.
Like you, I'd quite happily use a different driver, as long as it works. Perhaps it might be the most simple solution if you could let me know how to get that ML-1710 driver you're using?MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.5), late 2007, black, 2GB RAM
