Printer Sharing Isn't Working


I am having problems trying to share a printer on my desktop. The printer is an HP Laserjet 1020, and the desktop is running 64-bit Ubuntu Karmic. None of the other boxes on the network (wired/wireless, 32-bit/64-bit, Ubuntu Lucid/Win7/XP) can access the printer.

I have checked all of the appropriate boxes in printer properties and server settings. When I try to install the printer on the other systems, I am asked for a username and password on the desktop. I set up a user named "printer" and gave it a password, but when I try to use that username/password to install the printer on one of the other systems, I get an "access denied" error. All of the networked systems can see each other, and access shared files.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks,
Ed

I'm guessing that you are using samba to share the printer. If so,
you may need to add "use client driver = yes" to the [printers]
section of smb.conf.

Thank you for taking the time to respond, but I'm afraid the suggestion did not work. It only resulted in disabling printing on the desktop (after a reboot). When I commented out the entry and restarted the Samba server, desktop printing was restored, but I still can't share.
