Was not able to get my Samsung ML1740 monochrome laser to actually print and it was not something I could do without.

Cups dialog d/n work but found an Ubuntu article on the Samsung unified driver that did the trick
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=341621

After following the procedure to add the Samsung Unified Repository,
Code:
sudo apt-get install samsungmfp-driver

Then REMOVED the printer (which add printer had correctly found, it just did not actually print).

Then ADDed the printer (assume it picked up the new driver) and all is now working.

I hope this helps someone.

Best, Howie
