Network Printer stops when trying to print from Linux


I recently installed Gentoo Linux on my basement computer. I've set up a wireless network between the two computers and I can share files between the two fine. Printing also seems to be fine, but when I try to print on the computer with Gentoo Linux, the printer just stops and refuses to print anything else. I have to uninstall the printer from the other computer and reinstall it again for the printer to work again. Printing from the computer in Windows XP does not cause this problem.

/var/log/cups/error_log has a line with this:
Code:
E [29/Jun/2006:16:30:01 -0400] [Job 1] No ticket cache found for userid=0
E [29/Jun/2006:16:30:01 -0400] [Job 1] Can not get the ticket cache for root
Printer: HP PSC 1310 (Although the printer itself says it's 1315, the software says 1310)

EDIT: Also, Windows can see the page Linux sent and refuses to print it or cancel it. Linux just says it printed successfully.

Can you install the printer on the linux computer and share it to the Windows computer via samba? this usually works better. Also, see if Linux includes a driver for the 1315 as it is usually best to use the closest driver. Also, does the printer print the page from the linux computer? If not, then the data may be in the wrong format.

I may have to move the printer to the Linux computer, b I really want to avoid that.

The printer doesn't print the page from the Linux computer. The printer job panel on Linux says the page printed without any problems, but the the job panel on either computer in Windows says the job tranfered 64kb / X.XX Mb (size depends, but the 64kb part is always the same.) Any idea how I can configure CUPS to fix this?
