Cannot print from a Windows shared printer
One printer (Officejet7400) is on the network, which I have no problem accessing and the other printer (HPLaser1100), which is connected directly from a Windows box (Windows 7).
I have set the Windows printer to share and allow 'everyone' to use it.
I'm using the latest Arch Linux 64bit with KDE 4.9.2.
When I use 'Windows Printer via Samba' via 'Printer Configuration', it can see the HPLaser1100 (smb://BUSINESS/OFFICE/HPLaser1100) and I installed the recommended driver.
After that, I tried to a test page and nothing happen even though Arch knows the printer is there.
When I use Ubuntu or Mint Linux, it picked up and print no problem.
Arch Linux machine: 192.168.1.102
Windows 7 with HPLaset1100 printer: 192.168.1.100
Officejet7400 printer: 192.168.1.101
What do you guys think might be the problem?
