Can't print to Windows Printer using Samba...Help!
I have 2 pcs networked together. Samba is used to connect linux to win98.
I went to the command line and typed smbclient //MANCHESTER/CANNONS300 (Cannon S300 is the windows printer and it appeared in the share list when I typed smbclient -L)
After the smb:/> prompt appeared, I typed print /root/Sample.txt and pressed Enter. The message appeared: putting file /root/Sample.txt as Sample.txt -1138 (5.9kb/s)(average 7.6kb/s)
This message looks like the file is being sent to the windows printer for printing but nothing happened from the printer. I waited but nothing happened.
Do you know why the printer does not print? Anything to do so as to correct the problem?
Please reply quickly if you can......thanks!!

Try adding the printer via a local UNIX printer queue, so that it gets processed. What printer daemon are you using on your Linux system?
