I am trying to get my Linux box to print to a Windows shared USB Canon i450 printer using Cups and Samba, and I'm almost there, but there are a few things that arn't explained very well in the documentations I have read.
Do I have to set this share up in the smb.conf file first?
When I run the command below I get the error:
lpadmin: add-printer (set model) failed: client-error-not-found
lpadmin -p Canon -v smb://user
ass@servername/canonshare -P /usr/share/PPD/canon.ppd
One thing I'm not sure about is the last line - what is the PPD? I just made up canon.ppd.
When I try to setup the printer from the Cups web interface there is no entry for my printer, which is an i450. If I just choose one it installs, but I can't print. How would I add my printer, or do I have to find out if one of the ones there is compatible.
Any other hints or tips would be helpfull as well.
