cant print to win xp - attached HP3650 via samba/cups


I'm running RH9 on one machine and winxp on the other. Thw xp machine has an HP3650 printer attatched. Printing to the HP3650 from xp is working fine.

When I try to print to the 3650 from linux I see the print job arive in the xp print queue, and stay there....printing never starts. The job appears and then disappears from the linux print queue.

Cups is using the hpijs driver v 1.3.

Printing to another printer attached to the linux box (from both machines) works fine.

Has anyone had any experience printing to an HP3650 that can help Me out ?

Thanks !

'not sure where you are on the curve -- but I recall getting a list of samba services from my win box when trying to connect to an attached printer. The printer service I needed was listed in the samba services (# smbclient -L [name of windows box].

Hope this helps.

Pat, I see the windows box and the queue, and in fact the print job does show up on the windows box, so at least some information arrives in the xp print queue...the printer never prints it though. It just sits in the wondows queue with "status" saying "printing".

These resources have been most helpful to me:

and

Sorry I can't help more.

Whew....

So did you ever get that junker working???
I haven't had any luck at all using hpijs and the PPD file from linuxprinting.org. I'm about ready to trash this thing.
Did you have any luck?
Thanks,
je_fro

ditto

I have the same deal. HP 3650 attached to XP, I try printing from FC3 over the network, and doc appears in XP queue.

In my case, the printer initialises but freezes, and I have to manually delete the document from the queue directory in XP (the gui way of deleting won't work).

However, when I connect the 3650 straight to linux it works fine (only tested on FC4 currently), so I'm assuming it's not an issue with the printer.

Any help greatly appreciated.
