Print from Linux to WinXP printer
I have samba up and working, and can transfer files back and forth between the computers. Now I want to print from my linux to my windows printer. I tried the how-to on: http://www.faqs.org/docs/Linux-mini/...ing_to_windows
but when I get to the third part of 3.2, I get a Connection Refused error. Here is my info from smbclient:
lpadmin -p wprint -v smb://big/wprint -P /root/wprint.ppd
Or, am I way off and shouldnt even be at this step yet?
What distro are you using. I had this problem with SUSE 9.1 and Windows XP -- but using YAST and Printer configuaration tool it worked perfectly.
Select SMB printer in the CUPS system.
MDK AFAIK has a similar configuration tool and so do some of the others.
I can post the contents of the config files (generated by the config tool) if you let me know which one's you want to see. This should help.
my 2 Windows printers are an Epson 2200 and an Epson 1290. Windows Share names ep1290 and ep2000.
On the linux box I set my user id as the user id to logon to the Windows share but until you tell me what files you want to see I can't help you any more here (a bit like the blind leading the blind). All I know is that both printers are acessible from my Linux boxes.
