Installing Samba Cups printer
I have recently installed Slackware on an IBM Aptiva and am trying to access a colour printer on an XP box.
CUPS and Samba are both running. Can print to a Laser on a print server on the network. I can also print to the colour printer from Fedora and Mandrake running in separate partitions on the IBM Aptiva machine.
My problem is that I try to install the printer using Printing Manager I select Add Printer but on the Backend Selection form the option <SMB Shared printer (Windows)> is greyed out. On the equvalent in Fedora and Mandrake this option is available for use. How do I enable this option ?
The XP box is called abit. From slackware smbclient -L abit gives expected results in that it can see the XP machine and the shared printer.
