Yes, I am using it with a Samsung ML-2251N (via ethernet) without any
problem. I have also tested it with various HP PS printers (always via

I have collected various patches and notes... It is time to share
them (patches are mostly trivial) in this email.

 o cups-patches: according CHANGES-1.6.txt:
   «- CUPS no longer supports automatic remote printers or implicit classes
      via the CUPS, LDAP, or SLP protocols (STR #3922, STR #3923)»
   This patch update accordingly. [pkg/49960 addressed that]
 o foomatic4-db-patches: Update foomatic4-db to the latest stable
   version. Regarding that I think it's better to open PR. I will do
   that this afternoon or in the next few days (only part that I should
   do is to inspect the ChangeLog for the rest is ready).
   [pkg/49962 addressed that]

Compared to print/cups15 you will see that there are few ppds (more are
available via print/foomatic4-db). In order to use them you need to
generate via foomatic-ppdfile, e.g.:

 $ foomatic-ppdfile -P 'Samsung ML-225'
 Samsung ML-2250 Id='Samsung-ML-2250' Driver='pxlmono' CompatibleDrivers='Postscript gdi gutenprint ljet4 ljet4d pxlmono splix'
 Samsung ML-2251 Id='Samsung-ML-2251' Driver='No Default Driver'

To generate the corresponding "gdi" PPD:

 $ foomatic-ppdfile -p 'Samsung-ML-2250' -d gdi > /tmp/samsung-ml-2250-gdi.ppd

...then you can import it when configuring the printer in CUPS (and it
will be copied to ${PKG_SYSCONFBASEDIR}/cups/ppd/).

PS: I originally wrote this email on 09 Jun 2015 but the email was longer
than 40KB and so automatically blocked... I am now resending it without
attachaments that are no more needed, all the patches discussed here are
on pkgsrc now. Another important patch that I forgot to discuss in this
email was the one attached pkg/49961 that fixes foomatic-rip from
