Cannot print from Windows 2000 to HP through Cups.
As far as I can tell I've done everything exactly right. I did exactly what I did before with Fedora Core 1 and had no problems then.
I set up my Photosmart C4200 in Kubuntu and it works properly. The Cups daemon IS running. I get on Windows 2000 and add a printer by having it search for a shared printer. It FINDS my Photosmart C4200 on the Kubuntu box, shows me the exact address... (http://192.168.1.2:631/printers/Photosmart_C4200). Windows 2000 then begs for a driver. I put the hp cd in the tray, it finds the right driver and installs it. Windows then adds the printer, I make it the default. It shows itself as "ready" and taking jobs, yet it simply will NOT print from Windows 2000 no matter what!
This is the very same procedure I went through here with an hp 5550 and I had everything working in 10 minutes. Why will the Windows machine not print to my HP printer which it obviously detects and configures?
I've got to be overlooking something simple. Please help me with this. I've spent hours upon hours and still get the same result. Nothing.
It's been a long time since I banged my head against the wall with Linux. I just started back... lol...
