The HOWTO looks fine for 2010. In 2017 CUPS has changed but, more
importantly for this thread and its sister one at

 https://lists.debian.org/debian-user/2017/03/msg00100.html ,

Samsung has made changes to its Unified Linux Driver package.

rastertosamsungspl doesn't exist anymore. It is now rastertospl; the
PPDS are altered to reflect this.

It is a good object lesson in not using outdated proprietry software.
