CUPS/Samba print and file server vs. Android and Mac OS X
The Slackware server in our local school has a CUPS+Samba file and print server configured. So far, sharing files works very well on all Linux, Mac OS X, Windows Seven, Windows Vista and Windows XP clients. Printing works smoothly on all Linux and Windows clients. Now I have a few issues left.
I guess once these two issues are resolved, we've pretty much reached a very satisfying state of things.
Cloud Print, from the Play store works for me on my andevice, as well as the Samsung mobile app. Most printer manufacturers have their own mobile apps, as well.
As for filesharing with android devices, the kludgy file manager / samba options are ultimately the solutions that 'just work'. Most of the other options require root or custom mods, eg., I have sshfs working on my device....
