I came across what appears to be a useful post concerning the scanning
function of the scx-4500w (which I now have) at

This post mentions using a slightly altered xerox backend file at

However in F10 under /etc/sane.d/ I don't find any xerox files in this
directory.  Can anyone point me to a guide on how to get hold of these
files, and also the steps needed to install/test in F10/11 and try this for
the scanning function of this printer?

Also in terms of the printing function I also came across the ppd file in
the Samsung official downloads for the printer - they have three tarballs
available (dated from a few months ago) with various applications for Linux
and within these files there is a file scx4500w.ppd that presumably be used
to drive the printer?  I have only ever used printers in the past that "just
work" in Linux so this is a new venture for me.  Is it possible using the
standard tools in F10/11 to install the ppd file and try to print from cups
in the usual way?  If so again can someone point me to a guide?
