I've got a HP Deskjet hooked up to a Slackware 12.2 box. I've got CUPS set up and can print a test page from the box just fine. I've also got Samba set up and have a couple file shares that work fine.
I'm trying to share that HP Deskjet out via Samba, but I can't get it to show up in any Windows system. I see the server and its file shares in Windows networking, but when I open the Printers, no printer shows up. Running
net view \\servername from the command line lists the file shares, but no printers.
Here's the pertinent part of my smb.conf, if that helps:
[global] workgroup = HOMENET security = share hosts allow = 192.168.1. 192.168.2. 127. load printers = yes printcap name = cups printing = cups log file = /var/log/samba.%m max log size = 50 [printers] comment = All Printers path = /var/spool/samba browseable = no public = yes writable = no printable = yes guest only = yes
Can anyone give me some pointers as to where to start looking for potential causes?
Update: Running testparm shows no errors. Here's the output (minus the file shares):
[global] workgroup = HOMENET security = SHARE log file = /var/log/samba.%m max log size = 50 printcap name = cups hosts allow = 192.168.1., 192.168.2., 127. [printers] comment = All Printers path = /var/spool/samba guest only = Yes guest ok = Yes printable = Yes browseable = No
