I am using KDE, I searched the forum and Googled for an answer but did not find one.
I have a Samsung SCX-4521F printer and none of the included drivers worked.
I searched this forum and found this possible solution but unfortunately it did not install the driver I needed:
I Googled and downloaded the official Samsung Linux driver for this printer.
The driver that actually works is Samsung SCX-4x21 Series.
When I installed it, there was a message in the Terms and Conditions that said I consent to sharing my data with Samsung.
- CONSENT TO USE OF DATA
SAMSUNG ELECTRONICS may collect and use technical information you provide in relation to your installation and use of the SOFTWARE PRODUCT or the provision of support serv
If I don’t accept this, the driver won’t install.
I checked using a usb live version of Linux Mint, and this driver is included in there package but no mention of having to share data with Samsung.
I know when I installed this printer in Windows 10 I was able to opt out of this data sharing.
I even tried installing Firewall, thinking maybe I could block it that way, using Pamac but the Firewalld said it couldn’t connect to Firewalld???
Now please forgive my newbieness, but I have heard that in general, Linux packages remove this sort of data sharing.
So my question is two fold:
Is there someway to obtain this driver from a Linux distro where this data sharing is already removed, or
Is there someway to stop/prevent this data sharing?
As always, any help that you may provide will be greatly appreciated.
