Samba printer - strange!

Hi. I have a HP930c connected to a win2k pc. On Linux, I can map it at linux, using printtool - red hat 7.3.
But, the printer works very strange. It starts printing, but stops in the middle of the job... and sometimes, it starts printing the job when you cancel the job!
I need help! thanks!

Sounds like a driver problem.

At least it is getting there, you can probable rule out any SAMBA issues.

My co-worker had an issue with Suse 8, and printing to
winxp. Long story short, it turned out to be a perl script
file was not executable, just rw. What a pain that was to debug.

I would try to trouble shoot the linux driver a bit.

probable not much help.

Good luck,
