I´m pretty new to Linux, so please go easy with me!
I thought I had succeeded in setting up this linux machine to print to a remote print que on WinXP. I succeeded in printing a test page from Printer Drake (although to be truthful, a blank page came out each try) and I can successfully print from Open Office... so I naturally thought, ´Job Done!´, it seems I´ve been too hasty...
When I attempted to print from KPDF, I get an error message which says:
Unable to start child print process. Check the command syntax: cupsdoprint -P 'SAMSUNML1610' -J 'statement.pdf' -H '/var/run/cups/cups.sock:631' -o ' copies=1 cpi=12 lpi=7 number-up-layout=lrtb orientation-requested=3 page-bottom=36 page-left=36 page-right=36 page-top=36 scaling=100'
I visited localhost:631 through my browser and can see that CUPS is running and it can see the printer. I successfully printed a fine looking test page from there.
OS: Mandriva ONE 2008 / all updates applied
Printer: Samsung ML1610
Driver: Samsung ML-1610 Foomatic/gdi
Users: All users allowed
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
