Re: Linux Samba Client Printing

I'm using RHL 7.3, and I'm not getting any error messages at all. When I do a "print /etc/hosts" from within smbclient, I get this informational message:

putting file /etc/hosts as hosts-12657 (24.0 kb/s) (average 24.0 kb/s)

Whenever I print from an app (Mozilla, Kedit, etc.), I get no error messages either.

Did you use a utility to set up your winxp printer within RHL 8? If so, what's the name of the utility? Or did you edit printcap, smb.conf, and/or other files to manually set it up? Do you use a canon driver on your RHL 8 machine and the canon driver on the winxp machine? I read in the RHL 7.3 customization guide that if there's a printer driver on the win machine that I should set up the print driver on RHL as either raw print queue or postscript so the data doesn't get filtered more than once before going to the printer. I tried both raw print queue and bjc6000a1.upp as print drivers, but I get the same results: no error messages and no output on the printer.

Is cups supported with RHL 7.3?

I changed the driver type in printconf-gui from bjc6000a1.upp to gimp-print, and now at least I get some output on the printer. Text prints as double-width; graphics prints doubly wide as well and across pages (the RHL logo printed across 3 pages, for example). Any ideas? Here's my printcap entry when using gimp-print as the driver:
