Printing from Windows 7 to a Debian Samba Share
So I have printing working fine in Debian 5 set up with a samba share and even from another computer running Ubuntu Lucid, but when I try to print from Windows 7 nothing happens.
My printer is a Canon MP510, in Ubuntu the MP520 drivers work, but in Debian the Canon BJC-8200 drivers work fine.
Printing locally on the Debian machine works fine. Printing from the Ubuntu machine across the network is fine, but in Windows nothing happens. When I goto add printers it finds it without issue
and I just use the locally installed windows MP510 drivers. However, after that when I try to print a test page or anything else nothing happens. No errors or anything.
Here's my smb.conf:
[global] load printers = yes workgroup = WORKGROUP server string = %h server include = /etc/samba/dhcp.conf dns proxy = no log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m max log size = 1000 syslog = 0 panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d ####### Authentication ####### security = share printing = cups printcap name = cups security = share #======================= Share Definitions ======================= wins support = no [homes] comment = Home Directories browseable = no read only = yes create mask = 0775 directory mask = 0775 valid users = %S [printers] comment = All Printers path = /home/smbprint browseable = yes printable = yes public = yes create mode = 0700 guest only = yes guest account = smbprint [print$] comment = Printer Drivers path = /var/lib/samba/printers browseable = yes read only = no guest ok = yes
