Samsung ML 2010 on Slackware 12.1

The Samsung ML 2010 is automatically configured on Ubuntu, however on Slackware 12.1, the Samsung Unified Driver fails to install with the following error -

Unable to restart cups, script not found.

After going through the install script in the cdroot/Linux directory created by untarring the driver, if found that the para - restart-cups() in the script reads as follows -

elif test -e /etc/init.d/cupsys; then

it is obvious that the installer wouldn't work. So I changed it to

elif test -e /etc/rc.d/rc.cups; then

Moreover, the driver to be used for this printer is the one for 2150 and not 2010, that is the right driver is ML-2150 SPL II instead of ML-2010.
