ianw1974 Posted March 11, 2005 Report Share Posted March 11, 2005 (edited) Third day of using Linux Mandrake 10.0, and now looking to configure a printer. Having a few problems. The way I'm trying to configure is as follows: System/Configure/Configure Your Desktop/Printers. When it's loading in the printers, that were configured by default, it comes up with the following error message: Unable to retrieve the printer list. Error message received from manager: Connection to CUPS server failed. Check that the CUPS server is correctly installed and running. Error: connection refused. I ran Configure Your Hardware, and found that CUPS wasn't installed. It is now, so I've got around the error, but I'm having problems trying to see the shared printer attached to the Windows XP machine. How do I get to see it? I can ping the machine by IP and name, and I did a search using the SMB for Windows printing, and it found the workgroup and machine, but cannot find the printer attached. Help!
