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


Just for the record:  I don't have any "printing = xxx" in my samba.conf
file.  There is a printing = bsd line but it's commented out and the block
comment above it states that this line should not be necessary unless using
a non-standard printing system.


P.S.  I've got the Mac printing through the Samba share as opposed to using
LPD or AppleTalk or IPP directly.

To people seeing this problem (needing to define a raw print queue for
Windows printing to a Linux-hosted queue to work), do you have
'printing = cups' in /etc/samba/smb.conf?  Does putting it there

I'm starting to wonder if samba is missing a
'cupsAddOption("raw",[...])'.  Raw printing should work with this
(equivalent to 'lpr -oraw ...') even with octet-stream commented out
in mime.convs.

This is how gimp-print manages to print raw data to a non-raw queue
for instance.
