I am using print/cups (so the 2.0.3) version with a Samsung ML-2251N
printer on NetBSD/amd64 -current and pkgsrc-current.

I have collected and shared some notes in a previous thread on

...and I hope that some recent PRs that I had opened and kindly closed
by Thomas Klausner and Aleksej Saushev fix various problems (they will
be available in pkgsrc-2015Q2).

Regarding SPL (Samsung Printer Language) printers I know that wip/splix
package unfortunately does not work. But at least for the printer
mentioned above and probably also other printers alternative PPDs
(e.g.: gdi) should work pretty well.

PS: I have ``PKG_OPTIONS.gs_type+=           ghostscript-agpl'' but
previously I have also tested it with the older ghostscript version.
