When I go through this process I do *not* see the splix driver in the system-config-printer GUI tool.

1. sudo apt-get install splix

2. zompu:~$ lpinfo -m | grep 1740
foomatic-db-compressed-ppds:0/Samsung-ML-1740-gdi.ppd Samsung ML-1740 Foomatic/gdi
splix:0/samsung/ml1740.ppd Samsung ML-1740, 2.0.0
splix:0/samsung/ml1740fr.ppd Samsung ML-1740, 2.0.0
splix:0/samsung/ml1740pt.ppd Samsung ML-1740, 2.0.0

3. unplug the USB cable so that system-config-printer won't autodetect my printer

4. $ system-config-printer

4. enter "x:" in the URI

5. Choose "Samsung" and "ML-1740".

Oh, this one here named "Samsung ML-1740, 2.0.0 [en]" must be the splix driver. My mistake was thinking that one was just a variant of the GDI driver.
