In general, USB printers should be discovered and automatically
configured in Fedora.  It can take up to a couple of minutes to do this.
The reason it is slow is that the foomatic printer driver database takes
a very long time to load (but work is in the pipeline to speed this up).

For the Samsung ML-1610 specifically however, there is no driver we can
ship which drives it.
