I know lots of people have asked printing question but I have yet another question to add to the mix. I am running SUSE 8.2. The printer is connected to my Windows 2000 machine and it works on that machine. I configured the printer from SUSE using YaST2 and going to the printer configuration. For all I know it seems like everything set up correctly but when i try to print it never makes it to the W2K machine. I believe they just sit in the queue on the Linux side because when I go to http://localhost:631
they are all listed on the active jobs page. When I check the queue of the 2k machine they never show up. Also, in my printers.conf file the URI path for the printer is set to
smb://john:email@example.com/HPDeskJ. This user,john, is set up on my windows 2k machine. However when i look at the installed printers under the Localhost admin tool it lists the URI path as only smb://192.168.0.4/HPDeskJ with the user name and password missing, maybe this is part of my problem? Well, I will include a cut and past of the printer setup as it is in my printers.conf file and the information that the Admin tool gives me. I would appreciate any help people can give me. I am still new to Linux so somewhat detailed instructions would be appreciated. I have spent a good portion of time on trying to get this working, with no luck, so I am now hoping that all of you can point me in the right direction. Here are the excerpts from my printers.conf and localhost admin tool.
