My desktop is now dual boot, Xubuntu 10.10 has been added to WinXP. The attached parallel printer works fine with either OS. When running XP I can share the printer with my two XP laptops without problem. I cannot share it when the desktop is running Xubuntu. Neither laptop can see the printer. However, if I open the desktop Samba config application, change any parameter, retype in the original parameter, both laptops can see and connect to the shared printer - until I reboot the desktop
I'm giving up in ever hoping that I'll get printing working with windows 7 with the strange comments I've found on the net. Basically I have a samsung ML2240 printer shared on the network, everything can print to it fine except for my windows 7 laptop. It's shared via Samba.
Once you have extracted the driver files, copy the 32-bit drivers to the /usr/share/cups/drivers directory and the 64-bit drivers to the /usr/share/cups/drivers/x64 directory exactly as named below:
[Windows 2000 and higher] ps5ui.dll pscript.hlp pscript.ntf pscript5.dll
However after checking this, I dont have the files named within int he correct folder on my windows system :
%WINDIR%SYSTEM32SPOOLDRIVERSX643 folder for 64-bit drivers.I've tried installing the printer via the windows installer, however this adds the driver then tells me its not working and fails to print. I really dont know where to turn with this one. I've tried installing the samsung supplied drivers from the website. However they still fail to connect.
I'm running slack64-current.I setup samba to share a printer on my home network. I can print to the printer locally.The printer is visible on the network. However when I try to print anything on the printer via samba (or cups for that matter) from either the local machine or the remote machine, everything acts as if the job went through, but nothing happens. I'm sure I've seen this before on another slack machine that is currently unavailable, but I can't remember what the answer was, and I'm trying to be more precise with this setup so that I actually learn something.

I have a Windows XP box with an HP5610 connected to a USB port. I have a Dell notebook computer loaded with Ubuntu 9.10. I have the two networked via a wireless connection and can share folders/files between the two with no problem. Unfortunately, I cannot share the Windows printer with the Ubuntu box. I can go through the printer setup with Samba on the notebook and the HP is detected however, whenever I go to verify I get an invalid argument error.
In reading one of the posts it suggested pinging the ubuntu box from the Windows box. Since I already have viable file sharing connection does that come in play at all?
I've installed Ubuntu 11.04 in dual boot with Windows XP on my computer at work. I have a printer (HP LaserJet 3020) and I've shared it with all my coworkers, and everything's working like a charm. When a coworker wants to print here, first he has to select my shared printer on his computer and then print it. Cool! The point is... On his computer there are two network printers pointing to my PC: one for Windows and another one for Ubuntu. Now, here's the problem. Sometimes I'm logged in Windows, sometimes in Ubuntu, here. But my coworkers don't know when I'm in Windows or Ubuntu. So, if they select my Windows shared printer and I'm logged in Ubuntu, it doesn't work.
So, I'd like to know if there is a way to share my printer on Ubuntu as if it were Windows, I mean, I don't know if it's possible - that's what I want to know - but I thought maybe there could be a way to use a "single network printer link" on my coworkers' computers (instead of two distinct ones for each OS I use), so that they would select it and send their printing job to my printer, independently on which OS I'm using at the moment.
Summarizing... A coworker chooses my shared printer on his computer and send the job. Then it would be printed here anyway. It doesn't matter if I'm logged in Windows or Ubuntu.Is that possible? If so, how?
There is a printer connected to my Ubuntu box that I would like to share with XP users on my home network. When I browse for a network printer in XP the Ubuntu box is displayed, but does not display the connected printer.I added the following lines to cupsd.conf:Port 631Listen /var/run/cups/cups.sockand then restarted cups with:sudo /etc/init.d/cups restartI have also set ufw to allow incoming traffic through port 631 from each XP machine.
1. Want to share printer via Router (with print server function)2. Want to share files OSs and network map see image.Then tell me how I may achieve this is such a diverse network.note sharing printer by router is not the same as sharing printer connected to another computer, which 99.9% of CUPS and Samba guides concern themselves with. My router model is DIR-320 or ASUS RTN16 both capable of print server hosting.
Is there someone out there that makes something simple that you can network and share a printer between Kubuntu and Vista? I have my office computer running Kubuntu, which also has the printer attached to it. My media machine downstairs is running Vista, which I'd like to be able to print and share files from. I've been doing some reading that you need to use Samba. So, I installed Samba through Synaptic, and it appears that nothing happened. So, I did some more googling, and found I had to install something about system-config-samba, so I did.
I now have a Samba icon under k-menu > System > Samba. However, when I click on this icon, nothing happens. It does nothing (just like clicking on the Network Manager icon, which does nothing as well). So, I am now utterly confused. Is there a way to change samba settings via gui? I'm not comfortable with typing unknown commands into the terminal, as usually there is no explanation as to what's going on. If there was a step by step explanation, that would be ok, but as of now, there is nothing. Is there a simple setup tool out there?
I have shared my cpl-300 from my windows 7 machine to my network, so that may print from my linux laptop to it.
Now whenever I go to system -> Administration -> Printing and try and browse for my printer it asks for a username and password any username or password I enter that is on the windows 7 machine gets rejected.
So I tested to see what would happen if you used smbclient to view the shares available from the windows 7 machine, unfortunately it results in another permission error. The funny thing is I can mount a share using "mount -t cifs".

I have always been able to print to this from Ubuntu by adding a network printer through the "Windows Printer via Samba" gui.Now, in Natty, I can set up the printer no problem but all jobs fail. In the printer properties gui I can see this text briefly: "Processing - unable to connect to cifs host".The errors in /var/log/cups/error_log are:

I have installed ubuntu 10.10 and the Samba addon to configure my shares to my Windows terminals.This is what I got
Firewall off (utf disabled)
Internal Sata /dev/sda1 (EXT4 FS)
External USB HDD /dev/sdb1 mounted at /media/SG1500GB (EXT4 FS)
I have two shares
1. //home/test - Which I can see and access with no problems (can't write to it though even though I set the share as writable?, but, I can read from it). This is available to everyone. My windows terminal can see this folder and access it. This is on my main 80GB internal drive /dev/sda1.
2. //media/SG1500GB/Music. I set this up for everyone full access and I can see it at all my Windows machines but,I can't get into the folder. Windows keeps giving me an error stating network path not found.I also try to access it via the Nautilus (Places/Network/system/music) and get an error message "unable to mount location, Failed to mount windows share". This drive is mounted per the disk utility.
I am trying to share my printer with a windows xp machine.Samber server and configuration tool is installed. Still I have no clue how to get this to work. The printer is setup and working on my Fedora desktop.as anyone done this before and can give a step by step description on how to setup a Linux printer on a network (home-network) with windows.I already searched for it but non of the tutorial were clear enough or missing something.
I have connected a Windows 7 pc to a Ubuntu pc using a crossover cable & TCPIP. This works fine - can ping both ways and can 'see' both icons however when I try to setup the printer in Ubuntu the task fails at a prompt fpr user name - workgroup - password prompt. It tells me I must give a password to connect to the Windows box. This setup has worked when using WinXP but fails now. I have used all passwords known to me but nada. Where in the world is the Authentication dialogue originated? I'm both new to linux commands and loosing the will to live!
I am running Jaunty 9.0.4. I used system-config-samba (gui) to configure Samba. I put myself as a user and tried to map the drive from my local PC. I am unable to map the drive. On windows, I try to connect using a different user and when I select finish, it prompts me again and adds my workgroup before my user name.
When I create a new folder on my ubuntu machine and share it with my windows 7 machine using 'net usershare add <dir> <path>', I can't get write perms in Win 7. It keeps giving me a "You need permission to perform this action'. I've chmod the folder to 777 but still no luck.
The funny thing is, it was all working fine until I tried to add a new usershare yesterday (Can't think what I've changed). I use this sharing method to share all of my development /var/www/ folders so I can work on them from my win machine.
I have had a few problems with my samba smb.conf, and it nuked and rebuilt yesterday. I'm fairly new to the Linux game, and this permissions problem has me baffled.
I have mounted a samba share on my desktop from a remote server (with smb4k). There I created a symlink to "/". When I open the symlink with konqueror it opens the right one (the root directory of the server), but when i open this link with the shell (cd rootfs/), then it opens my local root directory (of my host)... Is it possible to open the right link with the shell?
I have two Ubuntu 10.10 computers and two Windows XP computers connected to my network. I cannot share files between the Ubuntu computers using samba. I keep getting the "Unable to Mount Location Failed to mount Windows share" error. I've tried the solutions posted by dmizer here and nothing works.Random true facts:I can successfully connect to folders shared on my Windows XP computers from either windows computer.I can successfully connect to folders shared on my Windows XP computers from either ubuntu computers.Neither of my windows computers cannot connect to folders shared on either ubuntu computer.Neither ubuntu computer can connect to folders shared by the other ubuntu computer.I REALLY need to get samba to work since I have other Windows computers on my network.
I am trying to access a shared printer from one Ubuntu PC to another.
On the Server PC, I have the printer working, I have set it to shared, and I have set the server setting to Publish shared printers. I can see and use the printer fine from a windows PC.
On my Ubuntu Client PC, I have samba installed, including smbclient, and all other samba components I can think of. I can see other computers on my home workgroup (Windows and Ubuntu fine). I can also add a printer connected to my windows PC. However I cannot find the printer connected to the other ubuntu PC.
I see the instruction in the Samba guide saying
"Now enter your Ubuntu Samba Print Server (set up as above) IP address in the box on the left titled "smb://"."
However I do not have fixed ip addresses, so what am I supposed to enter in the box. If I enter nothing I can browse the network and can see the host computer, but the printer is not displayed. I can also see the printer connected to the windows PC. How do I 'see' the Ubuntu printer?
I have a Samsung CLX 3175 connected via CUPS to a Ubuntu box running 11.04. After installing the Samsung Unified Printer Driver as described in this post [URL] the printer works perfectly under Linux, I even got network scanning to work under Windows via TwainSane.
The big problem is network printing from Windows over Samba, though (although I thought that this should be easier to set up than scanning..). Even after hours of trying, I could not get it to print a single page spooled from my Windows computer.the print jobs do show up in CUPS as finished, but do not actually get processed. Could this be a rights-related thing? Depending of one setting in smb.conf (namely, "cups options = raw"), the printer even makes some noise and warms up when I spool a new job -- but it does not print.
My setup is the following:
- CUPS in the current version with Samsung Driver - Samba 3.5.8 - Windows XP and 7 clients
ServerA has an NFS Mount to ServerB at mount point /home/qlogger/logs
I can cd to /home/qlogger/logs on ServerA and see the contents as they would be on ServerB (NFS Working with proper permissions rw).
I have a samba share setup on ServerA to share the NFS Mounted Directory (/home/qlogger/logs)
I connect with my windows host and am able to view the files and folders. I can create folders just fine however; when I go to copy a file from the windows machine to the samba share I receive a message saying the file is locked.
I have disabled oplocks in samba and the problem still persists.
so i found an older computer i want to play with as a file server. ubuntu server edition, installed gnome GUI (to make things easier for now, i plan on removing it later) and used [URL].. to configure my 1.5tb harddrive so my windows machines can access it. i had everything working but than a fatal crash made me start from scratch (os and all) now i am unable to access the samba share from a machine running windows 7, but i can access it from a machine running windows XP using the same login and password i set up for windows 7.this makes me believe it's a problem with windows 7 and not samba.
I'm able to connect to a networked Windows machine and its shares using the Places -> Network -> Windows network interface, but unable to do so using smbclient at terminal command line. I can see the shares using:
smbclient -L //server -U username
But when issuing the command:
smbclient //server/service -U username
domain=[server] OS=[Windows Server 2003 R2 3790 Service Pack 2] Server=[Windows Server 2003 R2 5.2] tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_BAD_NETWORK_NAME
The share name has spaces, like
lab raid root share
I use 40 to fill in the spaces. This problem must be something fairly simple if I can connect via the Places GUI but not through the command line.
