Hi, I have a samba share with a win2k pc . I want to be able to use the windows pc printer. I have used the printer configuration wiz (using rh9.0) to point to the samba share but when I try to print nothing happens.

this is the output from the printog
I [26/Apr/2004:12:16:29 +1200] Started filter /usr/lib/cups/filter/pstops (PID 9068) for job 2.

Sounds like a permission problem ... have you followed Cups'
advice and set the error level to debug?
