    Re-read post number 10, please post the config file. There might be a problem there.

    Sorry, I lost track of you buddy.
    Try installing Hplip from your repos, it's HP printing and Administration software that might include some options to help you along the way.

    From Morbius1:

    Re: Network printing problems!!
    Just some random thoughts.

    By far the best way is the "internet printing" method that efflandt suggested:
    Quote:
    http://ip_address:631/printer_name
    It bypasses Samba and that is always a good thing.

    It appears though that you are using the Vista Wizard to to browse to the printer and so Samba is being used. The original error you had was:
    Code:
    "Access denied, unable to connect"
    Edit smb.conf as root:
    Code:
    gksu gedit /etc/samba/smb.conf
    And modify the following section from this:
    Quote:
    [printers]
    comment = All Printers
    browseable = no
    path = /var/spool/samba
    printable = yes
    ; guest ok = no
    ; read only = yes
    create mask = 0700
    To this:
    Quote:
    [printers]
    comment = All Printers
    browseable = no
    path = /var/spool/samba
    printable = yes
    guest ok = yes
    ; read only = yes
    create mask = 0700
    Don't forget to remove the leading ";" in front of "guest ok = yes"
    Save the file and restart services in this exact order:
    Code:
    sudo service cups restart
    Code:
    sudo service smbd restart
    Code:
    sudo service nmbd restart
    See if that gets you any further.

    Re: Network printing problems!!
    Morbius1, Thanks for trying to help. Now both my Linux box and my wifes Vista laptop won't communicate with each other. All file sharing and everything else i can think of is turned on but I can't see the vista box from Linus and vice-versa. I just don't know what to do any more. Am I fighting a losing battle here and just go back to Windows? Oh how i hate that thought!! Please, anyone? HELP!!!!
    All help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks to all
    steve509

    PS, please keep in mind that I am still a newbie at this. I'm usually pretty good at figuring things out eventually but this has me stumped and my wife pissed

    PPS, I tried what you suggested but without both computers communicating with eachother...well, you know the rest......
