samba printer & CUPS (was Re: redhat-config-printer: I can'tconfigure a working printer!)



Thanks to every body for their input. I've switched over to CUPS and got
at least one of my printers working (the local one). That was too easy.
For some reason redhat-config-printer will not work on my system.

New Question. Does anyone know how to get a samba printer working on
cups? /etc/samba/smb.conf has:

   printcap name = cups
   load printers = yes
   printing = cups

# service smb restart

Here's what cups reports about the printer status:

Description: HP2000C
Location: HADES
Printer State: idle, accepting jobs. 
Device URI: smb://HADES/HP2000C

When I try and print a test page I get:

Forbidden
You don't have permission to access the resource on this server.

Any clues?

Thanks,

t.

"You must learn to run your kayak by a sort of ju-jitsu. You must learn
to tell what the river will do to you, and given those parameters see
how you can live with it. You must absorb its force and convert it to
your users as best you can. Even with the quickness and agility of a
kayak, you are not faster than the river, nor stronger, and you can beat
it only by understanding it." -- Strung, Curtis and Perry, _Whitewater_
