Using a Page Overlay
Using Overlays
After an overlay has been created, it is ready to be printed with
your document. To print an overlay with a document:
What is an Overlay?
Dear ABC
Regards
WORLD BEST
An overlay is text and/or images stored in the computer hard
disk drive (HDD) as a special file format that can be printed on
any document. Overlays are often used to take the place of
preprinted forms and letterhead paper. Rather than using
preprinted letterhead, you can create an overlay containing the
exact same information that is currently on your letterhead. To
print a letter with your company’s letterhead, you do not need
to load preprinted letterhead paper in the printer. You need only
tell the printer to print the letterhead overlay on your
document.
To use a page overlay, you must create a new page overlay
containing your logo or image.
WORLD BEST
To change the print settings from your software
application, access printer properties. See “Printing a

• RAM 256 MB or higher
• HDD 1 GB or higher
Getting Started
NOTES:
• It’s also necessary to claim swap partition of 300 MB or
larger for working with large scanned images.
• The Linux scanner driver supports the optical resolution at
maximum. Please refer to the scanner and copy section of
Specifications in your Printer User’s Guide.
• You can check your printer name in the supplied CDROM.
The supplied CD-ROM provides you with Samsung’s MFP driver
package for using your machine with a Linux computer.
Samsung’s MFP driver package contains printer and scanner
drivers, providing the ability to print documents and scan
images. The package also delivers powerful applications for
configuring your machine and further processing of the scanned
documents.
After the driver is installed on your Linux system, the driver
package allows you to monitor a number of MFP devices via fast
ECP parallel ports and USB simultaneously. The acquired
documents can then be edited, printed on the same local MFP
or network printers, sent by e-mail, uploaded to an FTP site, or
transferred to an external OCR system.
Software
• Linux Kernel 2.4 or higher
• Glibc 2.2 or higher
• CUPS
• SANE
The MFP driver package is supplied with a smart and flexible
installation program. You don't need to search for additional
components that might be necessary for the MFP software: all
required packages will be carried onto your system and
installed automatically; this is possible on a wide set of the
most popular Linux clones.

The installation program has added the MFP Configurator
desktop icon and Samsung MFP group to the system

MFP Configurator is a tool primarily intended for configuring
MFP devices. Since an MFP device combines the printer and
scanner, the MFP Configurator provides options logically
grouped for printer and scanner functions. There is also a
special MFP port option responsible for the regulation of access
to an MFP printer and scanner via a single I/O channel.
NOTE: You must log in as a super user (root) to install the
printer software. If you are not a super user, ask your system
administrator.
Insert the printer software CD-ROM. The CD-ROM will

Sharing Ports Between Printers and Scanners
Your machine may be connected to a host computer via the
parallel port or USB port. Since the MFP device contains more
than one device (printer and scanner), it is necessary to
organize proper access of “consumer” applications to these
devices via the single I/O port.
The Samsung MFP driver package provides an appropriate port
sharing mechanism that is used by Samsung printer and
scanner drivers. The drivers address their devices via so-called
MFP ports. The current status of any MFP port can be viewed
via the MFP Ports Configuration. The port sharing prevents you
from accessing one functional block of the MFP device, while
another block is in use.
When you install a new MFP printer onto your system, it is
strongly recommended you do this with the assistance of an
MFP Configurator. In this case you will be asked to choose I/O
port for the new device. This choice will provide the most
suitable configuration for MFP’s functionality. For MFP scanners
I/O ports are being chosen by scanner drivers automatically, so
proper settings are applied by default.

Using Your Printer in Linux
The following five tabs display at the top of the window:
•General: allows you to change the printer location and
name. The name entered in this tab displays on the

you change the printer port from USB to parallel or vice
versa while in use, you must re-configure the printer port
in this tab.

driver. By clicking Options, you can set the default
device options.
•Jobs: shows the list of print jobs. Click Cancel job to

command line interface. The CUPS lpr utility allows you do that.
But the drivers package replaces the standard lpr tool by a
much more user-friendly Samsung LPR program.
To print any document file:
