I'm using an Iomega NAS which is running Debian Lenny as the firmware, with a Samsung ML-2010 connected via USB. I have successfully enabled terminal use, and apt-get, subsequently installing Cups 1.4.4 and Splix 2.0.0, and setting up the printer using the Splix driver. The NAS had a print server with Samba (not using Cups) but it was tedious to use with it often being a case of printing, then having to reboot the NAS and then it might print the file.
I can access the Cups web interface, and print a test page via that. I have managed to share the printer via Samba with print jobs showing in the Cups interface, although have the same issue of things not printing immediately.
So I'm looking at either: -
- Making print jobs sent via Samba actually print, instead of getting stuck on "processing".
- Making IPP work, in the hope this addresses the above issue.
I'm beginning to wonder if this could be a limitation of the hardware rather than a S/W config issue.
Many thanks in advance.
