I am still not getting through on my network with Samba, and I still cant get my printer to work, I am running Windows XP Pro on my main computer, Athlon 2400, 760 mb Ram, 80 gb hard drive , my second computer is Intel Celeron, 256 Ram, 6 gb hard drive, I just got SuSE 9.0 w/ KDE desltop installed acouple of weeks ago. I thought I had Samba configured, and also my printer, Hp Deskjet 5550 but I cant get a test page and its not showing on my final printing dialog box even though I can see it on my network during configuration and can choose it. I cant see the Linux machine in my network places on theWindows box either. Funny thing though since I configured it every time I boot up the Windows box my printer starts running and kicks out a blank page. I am sooooo lost I am so very new to Linux and am actually jsut trying to learn and teach myself. I have been reading enormous amounts of help files but am still struggling with getting around my Linux. I did get my email and my IM ( kopete ) working. If anyone out there has any ideas or can point me in the right direction I would really appreciate it, I am lost at this point. Also I know this is going to sound really stupid but where do I find the directions on using the other desktop ( GNOME ) and how do I switch and also how do I find all the programs on my system and enable them.
Sorry for the looooonnnngggg post. Thanks a bunch to all of you here who share your experience and expertise. Hoping to be a part of the Linux World!!!!!
