Samba, CUPS and Windows Clients
I am attempting to set up a Linux box (Fedora 7) as a print server, using SAMBA and CUPS, and having the drivers on the server to be installed on the Win XP boxen on demand.
The printer that I am trying to get going is a Lexmark E232, which is a PCL6 printer, so the Generic PCL6/foomatic .ppd works fine when printing from the server itself.
However from an XP client, after going to Printers and Install New Printer, you can browse the network, locate the printer, hit install, and Windows returns with an error message -
"The server for the 'Lexmark_E232' printer does not have the correct driver installed.'
I have put the CUPS-Windows drivers, plus the required Postscript driver files from a Windows XP installation on the server, have run cupsaddsmb -H localhost -U root -a -v, which spits out a lot but eventually ends with 'Printer Driver Lexmark_E232 successfully installed'
So I can see the printers, it prints correctly locally, cupsaddsmb seems to do the job..but I am out of ideas. Anyone have any suggestions??
