Samsung C430W printer fails to print on Fedora 33 Jam

Trying to get my Samsung SL-C430W printer, which uses the Samsung Universal Linux Driver (ULD), to print on my Fedora 33 Jam system. The printer is connected by USB to the computer. Despite having installed the ULD (script installed) the KDE settings “printer” section (and I assume Cups) could not find the driver for the printer. When prompted, I chose a manual selection of the PPD file. After the printer was configured, a test print failed and a message in KDE settings “printer” stated that the file “rastertospl” was missing, so I manually copied the file:
$ sudo cp rastertospl /usr/lib/cups/filter/
Now I get, when going into the Cups web interface:
Samsung_C430W-13 Unknown Withheld 1k Unknown stopped “Filter failed”

Not sure where I should go from here, and I could use some help sprting this out. Some output:
$ sudo lpinfo -v

I also ran:
$ sudo journalctl -b -p err > errors.txt
However, I didn’t find anything relevant to my printer issue.

When this printer has been connected to Ethernet in the past, in Cups setup the printer is sometimes listed as “driverless”, so on the off chance that I could get some more info that would be helpfull to figuring out what is going on, I ran:

$ driverless 

ERROR: ippfind (PID 3376) stopped with status 1!

I already have ULD and CUPS installed, as stated above. I have also run the CUPS daemon…

The F33 KDE equipment works well with the Samsung printer. Of course, the model is different, but I think it will work well in the USB type. I tested it on the LAN, but I’ll try the usb and tell you the status.

The usb part is automatically detected and applied. The network part and the usb part of my device are as follows. Both work fine.

Thanks for the replies. In my case, there must be something related to either KDE in Jam, CUPS in Jam, or something conflicting, that didn’t allow me to print. I decided to wipe the system and install the Fedora 33 Cinnamon spin (which by the way, rocks) and was able to get my printer set up without any problems at all. Very strange, as everything that I did with regards to driver install, USB connection, etc. was exactly the same on both systems.

I am using kde for f33 server.
Part of the device conflict can be associated with other services. Nevertheless, I expect it to work.
God bless you.!
