Hi Heiko.

I've just installed a HP F380 MFP in my wife's pharmacy, and I used the
HP driver. It has to be downloaded from the hplip project site at
sourceforge. It installs itself in such a way that Sane automatically
detects it (without changing anything in sane), and also, it's recognized
by CUPS. I suspect a similar procedure is valid for Samsung. On their
website is a unified driver for Linux.
