Angry Ok I can see the printer that is shared in Linux in XP But...


Hi Gang,

Problem is that i can not b get it to print from Windows XP.
I have tried Cups settings and BSD.

Here is my SMB.CONF file .

Please tell me what to do to get this working.

# smb.conf is the main samba configuration file. You find a full commented
# version at /usr/share/doc/packages/samba/examples/smb.conf.SuSE
# Date: 2003-03-17

;printcap name = /etc/printcap

[printers]
comment = All Printers
security = server
path = /var/spool/lpd/lp
browseable = no

hello

by the souns of it i have a similar problem.
But something that you might like to try its to get rid of [[global]
and dump
printing = cups
printcap name = /etc/printcap
load printers = yes
log file = /var/log/samba-log.%m
lock directory = /var/lock/samba

under [global]

good luck. if you get it working tell me.

Ryan
