Re: Samba Printing Woes

I've just rebuilt my old RH8 file/print server up to FC3 (completely fresh install, new hard drive and everything). Mostly everything seems to be working well so far. It's sending out mail, Samba shares are seen properly for file sharing, music files are serving up properly.

Unfortunately, I can't get the printer -- my sturdy, reliable HP 712C -- to be seen in Samba. When I st up the printer locally on the server, it works just fine, and prints test pages beautifully. However, I'm having no luck at all sharing out the printer via Samba.

Here is the Samba information from the printer, generated by SWAT:

[Fluffy]
       path = /var/spool/samba
       guest ok = Yes
       printable = Yes
       browseable = Yes

This configuration worked perfectly under RH8, which was running Samba 2. The new server runs Samba 3, but I can't find anything on Google which would indicate that anything needs to be changed.

I'm at my wit's end, and I need to print up some documents. What am I doing wrong?



This is my samba.conf file, and printer works on my network...I guess thet you didn't uncomment the raw printing lines in mime.convs and mime.types file in /etc/samba directory.
