Slackware :: Cannot Print To Printer On Samba Share, Even Though It Is Accessible?
Jan 28, 2010
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'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 have a windows machine on which a printer is installed and configured. This printer is already shared. Now, I have a linux server (RHEL 5.4 x86) in which we have our Oracle Application Instance running. Requirement is to to print reports from Oracle Application erp software to the printer attached to the windows machine. I am trying to configure the printer from linux to print to that printer. I getting the following error: "This print share is not accessible."
I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 and Samba 4.The folder I've shared is on NTFS partition and though is visible from other Windows 7 system on LAN, can't be browsed. Even from my own computer if go to network places the folder is there but when I double click on it I get
using OEL 5.4, which uses Gnome 2.16 interface I can see my share from Windows, but whatever I do, I get messages that my share is not accessible. The whole user thing is quite complex, dont understand what user I should use on Windows, what password, what user should have what rights on linux.
I'll post smb.conf tomorrow ... The problem is that Windows lacks any decent error message, stating what kind of error message. Is there no Samba client for Windows?
have a server here running opensuse 11.3 that I need to access via network using samba. Samba is working so far and I can ping the serve and browse the shares from windows (WinXP) computers; but only via the IP.Now I've read up on samba on this forum and other sources, like the official samba documentation and compared my smb.conf with an older one on another server which works (and even copied this one over to the new one) - to no avail.I seem to be missing something and I just can't find it.Since the problem is probably not in the smb.conf (previously working one doesn't work on new server) - where else could I have screwed up?
I have Linux installed on one machine with samba running and a second machine running XP. They are going through my router and I am using the same username/passwords for both machines and I have even gone to the point of allowing access to everyone for the share I created and the worgroup in samba is MSHOME just like my XP machine. When I view (or search) my workgroup computers my Linux machine shows up and so do the shares I created but when I try to open them I just get a message that permission is denied and I may not have permission to use this resource. I even tried setting access to the shared folder to 777 but still I can't open this share. Has anyone got any idea of why this is?
I have Samba 3.5.3-61 running on a Fedora Core 13 system. I created a share that is browseable to all systems, and I made sure to create a user account via the smbpasswd utility. When I try to connect to the server from a Windows XP system, I am able to enter the appropriate sharename as well as the username and password.
xxxxxx:/etc/samba$ uname -aLinux xxxxxx 2.6.38-8-generic #42-Ubuntu SMP Mon Apr 11 03:31:50 UTC 2011 i686 i686 i386 GNU/LinuxI have a printer shared off of Windows XP. 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:
E [28/May/2011:14:32:31 -0700] [Job 15] Tree connect failed (NT_STATUS_BAD_NETWORK_NAME) E [28/May/2011:14:32:31 -0700] [Job 15] Tree connect failed (NT_STATUS_BAD_NETWORK_NAME) E [28/May/2011:14:32:31 -0700] [Job 15] Tree connect failed (NT_STATUS_BAD_NETWORK_NAME)
I'm trying to get GS to print to network Windows printer, but somehow fail to do so . I managed to print through CUPS to that printer but if I use GS with -sDEVICE=cups nothing happens, nothing is printed, CUPS logs remain unchanged... I also found command using smbclient (gs ... | smbclient //machine/printer -U user ... -c 'printmode graphics;print-') but that one fails with "session setup failed: NT_STATUS_REQUEST_NOT_ACCEPTED" Here is why I need it, so maybe you know better way: We need to print thousands of PDF files in one print job (to prevent anybody else to send something else in while we are printing this). I was trying to develop small C program using GS API to achieve this but somehow I fail on something as trivial as print something on shared network printer.
I am having FC11 with an HP prineter attached my firewall is disabled I trying to print from my laptops after I have setup samba and shared the printer , It was working fine when I was installing FC4 and FC5 I am not sure what is missing when I tried to print from the XP box I got "Test pge failed to print" error what I have really noticed in the xp and vista box is that when I go to the printer settings inside control panel , pressing the ports tab and checking to what port I am printing I see that the port "\samba-serverprinter" is not created there this is the log
I am attempting to share a folder from an existing drive that has been formatted in NTFS. I simply right click on the folder, goto share, and I can see the option to share to UNIX and that works with no problems. My question is; why is the SAMBA sharing dialog grayed out?
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 have a FC11 box, with an HP prineter attached. I trying to print from my laptops after I have setup samba and shared the printer , It was working fine when I was installing FC4 and FC5. I am not sure what is missing. when I tried to print from the XP box I got "Test pge failed to print" error.
At present we are using windows print server getting user name and authenticated from domain server. I need your suggestion to configure linux printer server and how to share the printer to users and how to limit the user in taking printouts.
I have my Slack box (Slack 13, 64bit) and wish to print to a Cannon ip1980 inkjet (32 bit drivers only. Source is only partially open, some libraries are closed source so cannot compile my own 64 bit driver) connected to WinXp laptop using the Windows drivers via wireless and Samba.
So I came across a little Windows app called RedMon that redirects a printer port to any other app [URL]
So basically what happens now on the Windows laptop is I have a virtual printer setup whose port is redirected to Redmon (call this Ghostscript2cannon) which in turn redirects it to a program called gsprint (command line tool that takes standard input - the print job - converts it to Postscript/Ghostscript for none PS printers) and then finally it goes off to the Cannon printer for printing using the Windows drivers - so far so good.
So the problem - basically I cannot get the printer to print from the Slack box even though I can see the shared printer and send a job to it. After a job is sent from the Linux box to the XP laptop if you double click on Ghostscript2cannon (on the xp machine) the job shows but there is no printer activity, the job just sits there and does not complete.
I can print a test page from Ghostscript2cannon directly on the Windows laptop so I know the Windows printer/redirect part is working.
From the Linux box I can see the shared folders of the XP laptop from Dolphin so we know the Samba/wireless part is functioning (although I cannot see the printer)
After installing libre3.3.2 using the Slackbuild scripts, I found that it displayed fonts correctly, but doesn't print the same font on the printer. The output of the printer should be Arial, but is instead some elongated, overlapping mess.
The same Slackware package installed on SW13.1 prints normally. (Same computer, different partition)
Spadmin used to control the printer fonts, but apparently not anymore.
My wife has a canon MP470 printer and running ubuntu 10.10. I am able to print black and white, but unable to print photos. I got it to work using another driver, but not the 'correct' one for this printer. I have searched a bit and don't see anything about ubuntu 10.10, just older versions. Or should I just network her to my printer....?
I just set up my firewall, and now I can't see any Samba workgroups. It says it can't find any workgroups on my local network, and it may be caused by a firewall. It is a firewall issue because if I disable my firewall, I can see the workgroup. What do I need to open on my firewall to see the workgroup? I am using Slackware64 13.37.
Here is how I set up my firewall.
Code: iptables -P INPUT DROP iptables -P FORWARD DROP iptables -A INPUT -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT iptables -A INPUT -s 127.0.0.0/8 -d 127.0.0.0/8 -i lo -j ACCEPT iptables -A INPUT -p icmp -j ACCEPT I got the commands from here url.
I am running virtualbox 3.2.8 and whilst I can use my USB keyboard my Canncon LIDE scanner, USB exble ternal hard drive and a logitech joystick I cannot access my Cannon IP4700 printer or Samsung laser printer.All my USB devices are recognized in the vbox settings nut are not recognized by guest win7 0r xp-pro any clues?
I have a share accessible from XP. However if I go for lunch and come back when I click on the share in Explorer it says its not accessible. When I click on it again it works. Its like the network card in the Suse server is going to sleep but I cant see any settings for it. I know where they are in XP and wonder if they are somewhere in openSuse? Or if there is some other explanation.
Our one remaining problem seems to be printing. She has an HP OfficeJet 6500 USB printer. We have the computer conntected. Strangely, when I boot from the CD the printer shows up as installed even though I did nothing to install it. After having submitted a print job it shows the printer status as "idle" and the print queue is empty. I tried deleting that printer and re-installing. The installation went as one would expect. However the results are the same. I'm beginning to think that somehow the problem is related to the fact that we are operating from the live CD. getting this thing to print from the live CD.
I'm having some troubles with my samba shares on a fresh install of Fedora 10 x86_64 on my laptop. The laptop has only the KDE Desktop environment. I'm trying to share between this computer and my homebrew server via a wrt54g linksys router running DD-WRT firmware. The server is running Fedora 9 i386.
The shares on the server can be read by the laptop, and I have been consistently able to mount the server shares on the laptop using mount.cifs, but only when the firewall on the server is down. Shares are only visible between the machines when the firewall is down on the machine containing the share. I set up the shares using the system-config-samba tool, and the firewalls are both set to allow samba server and samba client. I can typically see the laptop from the server, but not the shares, and only when the laptop firewall is disabled. I can access the Laptop shares from the laptop. When trying to mount the laptop shares on the server, a warning message stating that the mount failed appears. Shares show up as correct in both the system-config-samba tool, and the KDE sharing tools. The share shows a "shared" icon in the dolphin browser.
From all that I know, the shares should work perfectly. I've searched the web, perused the man pages and how-to's, and combed through the forums, and everything I've found tells me that the shares should be working. Since they are not working, it leads me to believe that I must have made a mistake someone and not noticed it.
I have been trying to set up a small file server on Fedora 15 using Samba. When I try to connect from WindowsXP it says the network is not accessible. I have tried to make multiple changes to the settings but to no avail.
I have setup Samba shares on my Ubuntu 10.10 and assigned different different username and password combination for each share.
The sharing works perfectly fine on all the Windows machines but it does not work on OSX. When I try to connect using OSX, it ends up showing waiting icon (screenshot attached) after entering username and password. (It asks for the login details after selecting the share from the list)
Following is my smb file content:
Code: # # Sample configuration file for the Samba suite for Debian GNU/Linux. # # # This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
I have a samba server set up on my computer, and I can only access the shares over the network by loging in as my main user. This works for all shares, on any drive. When I log in using my fileshare guest account, I get the list of shares, but after selecting one to connect to, it gives an error that the server isn't available. Any share off the boot drive won't work. I don't know if it has to do with permissions, or it's a config problem.
I have a Centos 5.3 server with Samba file shares and a shared Samba printer. I am not running a domain.
I recently changed my windows desktop pc from an XP machine to a vista 64 machine... It has a different user name. Everything went pretty smoothly - and the and the vista machine found the smba printer - and even downloaded the driver from the samba server. he printer works OK - and the file shares are fine.
The only thing which is quite odd - is that the Printer Properties dialogue takes more than 30 seconds to come up - and every action you attempt with the dialogue takes a similar amount of time.
