Macos - Catalina - finding driver for my M2070w Samsung printer in 64Bits

For others looking for a solution: This is it!!! Thanks to @emre858 but this is a slight variation which worked for me.

 

That's how I was able to install my fully functional M2070FW printer on Catalina

 

  1. I downloaded the latest driver (M2070_Series_Mac_PrinterDriver_V1.04.01.zip) form HP's site
  2. Unzipped the file
  3. Run the pkg file in ~/Downloads/PrinterDriver/MAC Installer/MAC_Printer/Printer Driver.pkg
  4. This will will go through the install process, but mine threw an error twice ("InstallerApps") - press Cancel on the popups however, the installer continues and ends in success.
  5. Unzipped ~/Downloads/PrinterDriver/MAC Installer/MAC Data/Printer Driver.zip which created ~/Downloads/PrinterDriver/MAC Installer/MAC Data/Printer Driver folder
  6. Copy the file ~/Downloads/PrinterDriver/MAC Installer/MAC Data/Printer Driver/10.6/PPD/gzipfile/Samsung M2070 Series.gz to your home folder ~ (or desktop)
  7. Opened System Preferences > Printers & Scanners and hit [+] button to add a new printer
  8. Selected [Other...] under [Use] dropdown menu and selected the gz file Samsung 2070 Series
    1. Its possible that you might see the Samsung printers under [Use] -> Select Software, if so, you can select this.
  9. Voila! Both the printer and scanner is working!
  10.

When I tried this I was unable to select the gz file, it was disabled. Anyone else been successful with this one?

You need to move the gz file (Samsung M2070 Series.gz in my case) to somewhere like your home or desktop folder - it cannot be in the downloads folder.

Great, this worked for me, but was still disabled with my desktop folder - possibly something to do with the new folder restrictions for certain folders or it being setup for syncing to iCloud. I copied the file to a non-icloud folder and it worked as expected.

 

Scanning worked ok and my first test print worked.

 

Supply levels don't show.

 

Thanks for the work around.

This didn't work for me with my Samsung Xpress M2835DW printer. I am able to get the gz file in the home folder, etc, but when I go to Add the printer and choose the gz file I get an error that says "Some of the software for the printer is missing. You may have to reinstall the software to be able to successfully print."

And then: "The software for the printer was installed incorrectly. Please reinstall the software from the manufacturer."

 

When I set it up via AirPrint, printing just produces a bunch of garbled characters at the top of each page and keeps printing pages like that even if the document is just 1 page.

 

When will HP provide an update to the drivers for 10.15???? This is ridiculous.

After it fails to install, is it actually available in the drop down rather than AirPrint even though it stays on AirPrint? - I can't remember what the error message was when I did mine.
