If all works the way it is supposed to, after following this guide you should have a printer on a Unix machine (which runs CUPS) which can be used by any Windows 9. 5, 9. 8, and Me]. I'll just record here the error messages I got when trying to run cupsaddsmb -v -U root -a and the corresponding fixes. That directory is as follows (windows ps drivers added also): ls -lR /usr/share/cups/drivers/ /usr/share/cups/drivers/: total 1432 -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 803 2006-07-26 15:25 cups6.inf -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 72 2006-07-26 15:25
Same error but with the Lexmark name in the error instead. This might have changed though - this was Windows 9x and NT. Since it is probably a pain to install a windows driver on the ubuntu share area, I just installed the driver locally.

Cups Windows Drivers Are you new to LinuxQuestions.org? mcduckAugust 23rd, 2011, 02:35 PMThe computer(s) connecting to the print server shouldn't need any drivers at all, as it's only the server that directly communicates with the printer.
I've got the same behaviour you get, If you need some more information ask. Check This Out Powered by Blogger. If you've chosen to create a dedicated user to the printers sharing, just add it to CUPS as authorized to print and restart CUPS service. Almost nothing to be done.
However, I have no idea of the right path where the drivers should be located. http://geekyprojects.com/ubuntu/getting-windows-printer-drivers-from-cups/ According to this tutorial, there are additional and slightly different details than what is written on the man page.

When I click Next, I get the message "You are about to connect to a printer on UBUNTU, which will automatically install a print driver on your machine....
I searched for the model on www.openprinting.org and found that it works perfectly, so it says. No, create an account now. Not sure if they are too much "loose" or they're good. Once you have installed the driver on a Windows system, copy the.
Anyway, I found the answer. I had the same problem using Ubuntu 6.10 & Samba 3.0.22 (cups, foomatic and so on...). I have security = ads and just used the -U switch on cupsaddsmb to specify my domain user name and it went through swiftly. have a peek here I found a button called "Export Printers to Samba" https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BxrW...it?usp=sharing mobjr View Public Profile View LQ Blog View Review Entries View HCL Entries View LQ Wiki Contributions Find More Posts

So it seems I have to either install the driver locally or pull the driver from the ubuntu server (not mentioned in the doc). Apparently, it helps if the idiot installed smbclient and ran the cupsaddsmb command again... This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant.
I would prefer that the drivers are automatically delivered from server as that is what one would expect when one uses the "Add printer" wizard. The main Samba configuration file is smb. Windows 2. 00. 0 and higher]. I didn't have any luck with cupsaddsmb command last time, but I thought "What the heck, I know a bit more about linux now" and decided to try using it again.
Guess I'll have to switch it to USER and restart samba every time I want to add another printer. For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. Once you have done that, make sure that the directory pointed to by the [printer$] section has the proper write permissions set for this this user. Specifies that verbose information should be shown.
silverropeAugust 25th, 2011, 09:13 AMWell, I guess the lack of response means that no one or very few have ever tried this, so I assume the best and probably only way CUPS. Also, cupsaddsmb will not create the dir W32X86. After hours of just trying to get samba and windows 7 to play nice I then ran into the driver problem with HP officejet 6200.
silverropeAugust 23rd, 2011, 03:30 PMWell, I just followed the official documentation and it is clearly insufficient. After I click OK, I get a list of drivers (I guess these are included with XP?) or the button "Have Disk", which I assume it means I have to search Sorry for the noobie questions.
