How to install scanner and printer Samsung m2070w or m2070 on Ubuntu

Samsung m2070 series (including Wi-Fi) work with Ubuntu easily. You need to add their driver by adding new source either via GUI

  • Edit the repository settings (e.g., “Software& Updates” go to “Other Software” -> “ADD”) to add:
deb debian extra
  •  or by issuing this command:
sudo bash -c 'echo "deb debian extra" >> /etc/apt/sources.list'
  •  add signature by running:
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp:// --recv-keys FB510D557CC3E840
  •  update apt repository:
sudo apt update
  •  install Samsung m2070 drivers (as of end of 2017)
sudo apt install suld-driver-4.00.39
  •  You may run SimpleScan (already installed with Ubuntu by default) to scan and check your printers to see it’s status.
  • Done!

  • P.S. If you want a specific version of drivers to be installed you may run the following command to see versions available for install:
apt search suld
