Vista fails to print when going to CUPS. XP works fine.


I've got a machine setup as a server with Samba/CUPS installed with a HP PSC 2200 series printer setup. I can print fine from Windows XP, but I can't seem to figure out why Vista is giving me so many problems(another reason to hate Vista).

Ideas?

Have you installed the printer driver on the Vista machine? Windows machines can either have the printer driver installed locally or they can get it over the network from the print server. See if the printer driver is installed on the Vista machine and if it is installed on the XP machine.
