Linux and WinMe : print
Posted on 2002-06-24
PC no 1 = winme, hp officejet g55 all-in-one attached via lpt1. Printer shared over the network. Printing works from any windows client.
PC no 2 = Linux - Suse 8.0 Pro - Samba running. network with pc 1 works, can surf via proxy using modem in pc 1 etc.
Installed samba printer via Yast2, wizard found ip address of pc 1 and 'saw' the HP printer. Selected driver etc and all looks ok, but when I tried to print nothing happens. No error, nothing.
Smbclient is running (I think) - command :
smbclient -L pc1 returns the shared folders and the printer.
Am getting desperate. Been messing around for several weeks now with no luck. Tried several other forums (incl EE and linuxprinting.org) without success.
Hope someone shows some compassion... :-)
