Mine does auto configure - it is the Samsung scx4500W - and both the
print and scan works without issue in f16 - originally there was the
scx4500 in the defs, but not the 4500w, but the innerds are the same
for the printing part, and adding the id to the config made it work in
f14 - but now the wireless model is already in there in the past year
or so. It is possible that although the OP has a printer that is not
in the splix support list that adding in the id at the appropriate
part of the config would allow it to work with the existing files? It
would need to be tested of course!
