Could delete the printer then select to add the printer in the cog menu in the top right corner. You can then use this PPD:

/home/stefano/Scrivania/cdroot/Linux/noarch/at_opt/share/ppd/ML-1670spl.ppd

Should work ok

Fine, problem solved !
It was simple, just deleting the printers ... there where 2 lp (laser printer by Samsung) creating a mismatch & conflict.

Re-install done by simple add a new printer from the cog menu; by the way the drivers where added before, system
has automatically set in "plug & play" by switching on the printer.

Thanks alot! andrew-woodhead666 (somtimes I do "the King" ... i'ts your turn now! )
