Network not accepting Shared Printers


Fedora 17 / KDE

The Samsung Print Driver I'm using is installed on two other F17 boxes and working fine.

Using system-config-printer and in Printing-Localhost > Help > Troubleshoot I'm getting a error saying:

"Although one or more printers are marked as being shared , this print server is not exporting Shared printers to the Network".

In Properties in Policies > shared is checked . Prnter is also set as "Default"

And it is saying that in Printer State Message : "Data file sent successfully"

I was just looking at 0-reply threads and saw this one. Noting that it was marked "solved," I wondered what solution you had found.

See the Thread: No Printer, Troubleshoot.txt Log

It's a Log showing the problem.

The link in that post no longer works. (It was posted with a one day lifetime.)

Anyhow, I was more curious about why this thread was labeled "Solved" when no solution was explained.

I too would like to know how this problem was solved. I often times have trouble getting printers shared, mostly after an upgrade. Lots of us could potentially benefit from this.

No one seems to know and I still have not got it to print.

I know the Samsung driver is good, because I have it installed on a Fedora 17 Laptop.

I had Fedora 15 installed on this PC with the Samsung driver and it work fine. I have Fresh installed Fedora 17 on this PC three times and I still can't get it to print.

The settings are the same as on the Laptop and on the same AP Network.

Called Samsung and they don't know either. They said they don't support Linux because it is not that widely used. 80% of the Internet Servers, Amazon , Google,IBM, Nasa, The US military is moving all their weapons system to Linux, two weeks ago the Airforce said it was dropping Windows from it's Drones and installing Linux on it's Drone Systems. The US Military is moving to all Android Phones.

Not Widely used !! What a F--king joke.

All these IT depts are run by a bunch of Windblows Idiots.

Maybe if you marked your thread "Unsolved" you'd get some helpful replies.
