CUPS & samba printers
Posted on 2003-03-07
Was playing around with CUPS for the first time this weekend, and tried to configure a SAMBA printer connected to a win98 box ( Canon LBP4 lite ).
However, I seem to be doing something wrong as it won't even print a test page.
Can someone give me the "ins and outs" of getting the samba printer to work with CUPS.
In the past I have succesfully configured many samba printers via LPD , so I'm not completely new to the concept.
Also, I managed to get a USB Canon S100 "working" via CUPS on my notebook, but I can only get it to print a test page from CUPS. Other applications fail to print to the printer.
I am specifically wanting to have OpenOffice print to the printer, but it only has a "generic" printer under the options, so I'm not sure what to do...
