I found this link. It's for gentoo so you'll have to alter it for slackware. Skip down to the part about linux.

But, as I can see, this is manual for installing drvier to print on Windows over Samba. Has anyone succeeded in installing this driver to work on Linux? I have same printer and Slackware 10.1. If you've succeeded please write how.


Thanks!

Sorry for late reply.

I've followed the howto and nothing. Could you please write step by step instruction what you did to have you printer working.

We both have Slack, so please write the accurate commands what you did, and describe please configuring process, because I am definitely doing something wrong, but I don't know what.

Thank you
