Hi all. I'm having problems getting shared printers working on Redhat 8. I can see the printer and connect to it using KDE's printing manager but I can't get it to print. The log files aren't showing anything. I think I'm not defining my printcap properly so I'm posting my smb.conf here. Thanks for taking a look!
