      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

can't add printer in mandriva

Recommended Posts


i've been trying to add my printer which is atached on winxp w/samba. The print wizard see's the printer a hp-750 and when i select ok the process fails w/cryptic "Failed to configure printer". I've tried several times and always the same result. I tried loooking thru the cups error log but could not see anything. I dont even know if problem is w/cups or mandriva. I updated to 1.2.1-4.mdk2006.0.mde but that hasnt helped. i attached the error log if someone has suggestions on how to troubleshoot this would be much appreciated.thanx

ps- sorry about the size of error_log but i turned on diagnose mode in cups and this is what i get...

In fact exists a problem regarding print that is due to cups but since mandriva 2007 is out there i will start doing packages for it.
