My use of the word "driver" here is a bit of a misnomer. SPLIX is a
set of CUPS filters for many Samsung laser printers, not a kernel
level driver. I've had great success using the SPLIX filters with my
ML-2510 printer. My use of the word "driver" to describe these
filters is a hangover from my Windozzzze days.
