Can not print to printer on samba share, even though it is accessible?


I'm running slack64-current. I setup samba to share a printer on my home network. I can print to the printer locally. The printer is visible on the network. However when I try to print anything on the printer via samba (or cups for that matter) from either the local machine or the remote machine, everything acts as if the job went through, but nothing happens. I'm sure I've seen this before on another slack machine that is currently unavailable, but I can't remember what the answer was, and I'm trying to be more precise with this setup so that I actually learn something.

Any clues as to what I've left out?

Hi damgar, Welcome to LQ. You could try the create mode line and/or the print command option.

Code:
[printers]
   comment = All Printers
   path = /var/spool/samba
   browseable = yes
# Set public = yes to allow user 'guest account' to print
   guest ok = no
   writable = yes
   printable = yes
   create mode = 0700
   valid users = dtest
Good luck. ;-)
