Review of Linux Compatibility
The Samsung CLX-3305W is a color All-in-One printer which also supports printing per WiFi and has the USB ID 04e8:3456
lsusb: Bus 003 Device 018: ID 04e8:3456 Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd
The printer an the scanner of the device are fully supported in Linux by the “Unified Linux Driver” that can be downloaded at the Samsung homepage: http://www.samsung.com/de/support/model/CLX-3305W/TEG-downloads
CUPS, SANE, and GhostScript are needed for the installation of the “Samsung Unified Linux Driver”.
The installation of the Samsung Unified Linux driver in Ubuntu is described at http://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/Samsung-Laserdrucker (in German).
If the scan results of SANE are monochrome only, this might be caused by an outdated version of the SANE backend. In this case an updated version of Sane (at least the version sane-backends-1.0.23) should be installed.
