Sharing printers to Windows
ok, I'm pretty confused. I have a printer (Brother HL 1440) that is set up on a linux system (Fedora Core 3) to be shared to a few windows systems.
I went to the first system, browsed to the printer (\\server\HL1440), right clicked, chose connect, told it I trusted the source, and selected the proper driver. The printer works perfectly...
I went to the next computer, and repeated this, BUT...it didn't ask for a driver. Now, every time I try to use the printer (via MS Word), I word crashes as soon as I select the printer from the dropdown. It gives this error:
AppName: winword.exe AppVer: 11.0.5604.0 AppStamp:3f314a2f
ModName: bruhl01a.dll ModVer: 0.2.0.0 ModStamp:3c7ee6fe
fDebug: 0 Offset: 000046db
So I tried to go to 'Control Panel' -> 'Printers' and right click the printer...choosing properties. I then get a GPF:
Function address 0x6a9046db caused a protection fault. (Exception code 0xc0000005) Some or all property page(s) may not be displayed.
I tried another win comp...same thing as the second. (not good), all computers are XP SP2 with ALL updates, and identical hardware.
