Re: Tackling a shared USB printer (linux -> WXP)



Bob,

Thank you very much!  It's been a long battle against this printer, but with
your help I've finally won!

After changing the mime.types and mime.convs to include
application/octet-stream the Windows machines can print (well, at least one
can -- I haven't tried the other, but for all intents and purposes, they're
the same).

Thanks also to Tim who reminded me of the error_log location.  It was clear
when I looked at that that it was getting an octet-stream (and even asking
if I had that support turned on!).

Anyone know if there is a USB printing mini-HOWTO and if not, where should I
look to get the info about writing one so I can help others in distress!

Thank you both very much again!

Brion
