Cups error "client-error-not-possible"


I am running Fedora 15 and want to add a network printer (Brother HL 2040) on a Win pc reunning XP pro. Fedora finds the network printer, shows that is shares, but when I try to finish I get the above message. I have emptied the spool file of the test page I tried earlier and nothing but the tmp file remains. Anyone have any suggestions?

Here's the Open Printing Database listing for that printer.

You didn't mention whether Samba is running on the Fedora box. You need it to print to a Windows printer.

The smbclient command can be used to see verify how the printer is being seen.
