Funny. Couldn't you just have your message sent yesterday? :) I'd have 
more hair on my head.

Before I read your reply I did 2 things. I left libstdc++5 the 
dependency of samsung-unified-driver package on my system and copied the 
99_smfpautoconf.rules file from the samsung driver to my udev rules folder:
# This file is a part of package samsung-unified-driver
# Rules to allow low level USB device access for smfpautoconf

SUBSYSTEM!="usb|usb_device", GOTO="label_end"
ACTION!="add", GOTO="label_end"

ATTRS{idVendor}=="0419", MODE="0666"
ATTRS{idVendor}=="04e8", MODE="0666"
ATTRS{idVendor}=="0924", MODE="0666"
ATTRS{idVendor}=="413c", MODE="0666"


And now I  can print again! Yay!
