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

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

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

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


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.
