Printer Configuration


I need some assistance setting up network printer that is connected to a Win XP machine on my network. the Exact model of printer is a HP 1215. I have been unsuccesful so far in getting my Linux RH 7.2 to print from this.

Any hints or direction would be greatly appreciated!

hello,
1st! (and I mean it!!) get the updated packages from redhat using up2date or install the rpms
here are the ones you need:

Omni-foomatic-0.5.0-4.i386.rpm
foomatic-1.1-0.20011218.3.i386.rpm
printconf-0.3.61-3.i386.rpm
ghostscript-6.51-16.i386.rpm
printconf-gui-0.3.61-3.i386.rpm
Omni-0.5.0-4.i386.rpm

after this use printtool to set up the printer - select smb and besure to use the \\MSXP\printername - pretty sure ya need the slashes
