I tried a few tutorials on samba and cups and tried to set up the printer in Vista but no luck. I know it must be something simple I am missing, but don't whow what. Can you post your smb.conf and cups.conf config files
to see if I missed anything?
By the way, how can I post my smb.conf in a post? I tried it as an attachment and it says "invalid file"
I added a screenshot of the "printers" section of smb.conf
Also in Windows Vista when you add printers, what is the proper procedure?
Add a printer
Add a network, wireless or bluetooth printer
Is is Browse for Printer, Select a shared printer by name or
Add a printer by TCP/IP
I think it is add a shared printer. If so, what would I put in:
When I put in \\192.168.2.10 a popup box came up saying
Connecting to 192.168.2.10 asking for a username and password
I put in my linux account username and password and I get an error
"windows cannot connect to the printer Operation could not be completed (error 0x0000052e)
