Samba "raw" printing problem
I'm trying to set up network printing via a wireless home network and have not been able to solve this final problem. Whenever I send a job to the printer, I get an error "Unsupported format application octet stream".
Setup is as follows:
server-Slackware 9.0 with HP printer on /dev/lp0
laptop - WinXP
Samba running on server.
I can access shares on the server and see the printer. There is a separate printer queue setup as "raw" and that is the queue that has been configured in the Windows printer configuration dialog with the Windows HP drivers.
I have the lines "use client drivers = yes" in smb.conf and both /etc/mime.types and /etc/mime.convs have the "application octet stream" lines uncommented.
When I try to print a test page from XP I get the printer dialog box showing the job spooling and then printing but nothing actually prints. In the cups_errors log file I get the above message along with a comment "Hint, do you have raw printing enabled?"
Any suggestions will be gratefully accepted.
