Samba Printing to a Windows Printer Mandriva 2006

Recommended Posts

Hoping someone can tell me if they have figured out a way around the windows printing problem


each time I print to a smb printer here is the error in the cups log


E [13/Sep/2006:09:28:17 -0400] [Job 3] Can not get the ticket cache for root

E [13/Sep/2006:09:28:17 -0400] [Job 3] Tree connect failed

E [13/Sep/2006:09:29:17 -0400] [Job 3] Unable to connect to SAMBA host, will retry in 60 seconds...ERROR: No ticket cache found for userid=0

Are you providing the correct username and password for the remote windows machine?


yes, but I believe the problem is a little more complicated, after running testparm on the config file here is what it says:


[root@localhost samba]# testparm smb.conf

Load smb config files from smb.conf

Processing section "[homes]"

NOTE: Service homes is flagged unavailable.

Processing section "[printers]"

Processing section "[print$]"

Processing section "[pdf-gen]"

Processing section "[billydv]"

Processing section "[My Documents]"

Loaded services file OK.

Warning: Service printers defines a print command, but print command parameter is ignored when using CUPS libraries.

Notice how it indicates some kind of problem in the printer configuration about ignoring print command when cups libraries are use, this part has not been modified from the original file from the install.

Did you configure via mcc or directly via cups? If you want to try directly via cups then point a browser at localhost:631
