Installing A Dell 1100 Laser Printer in Ubuntu Linux

I’ve had an Dell 1100 laser printer for several years which has been both cost-effective and dependable for my low volume printing needs (coursework, maps, shopping lists, etc.). Trying to find how to get it to work on Linux wasn’t quite as easy to find on Google as it should have been, so I thought I’d post a quick entry about it and hope that it helps someone else out.

In Linux (I use Ubuntu but this should work for any other distribution), when adding the Dell 1100 printer, select the Samsung ML-1020 printer driver. That’s all you need to do, and it should now work for you.

I must admit, I was actually somewhat surprised that this printer would work in Linux given it’s price point.
