ppd file ...
thanks in advance


Yes you need to include the ppd file in the conf files.
unless you are printing _from_windows_to_linux_ in which case RAW is correct.
If you are printing from your linux box you need to include the ppd file as i understand it.

Good luck,

Hi guys,

I am trying to get my Linux box and open office suite to print to a remote print queue.

I have successdully managed to print so far in this way:
Code:

smbclient //printserv/hp228 -I IP.ad.dr.ess -N -c 'print filename.ps'


where printserv is the server name and it is located at IP.
This method has obvious drawbacks.

Thus far using the HOWTO in this forum I have installed and am running samba & cups.'
I have had no luck configuring the KDE printmanager successfully though.

Yes: i have a valid .ppd for the HP LaserJet 4300 postscript printer.
Yes: i have the symlink for smb backend.

To my understanding i need to run a local CUPS server of whatever name that 'prints' files in postscripts format to the printserv queue.

this requires me to emerge CUPS and samba, run the servers after
I install the required ppd file for the destination printer.

Then setup the CUPS print server through the KDE print manager wizard or via the web interface.

Q: Within KDE PM or localhost:631/admin,

I add a printer:
I select Smb share printer (windows)
option 1) put in the name of the CUPS server (not very sensible)?
option 2) put in //printserv/hp228
option 3) put in //printserv

with the name n the next page = hp228.

Then when prmpted with the options select the hp LJ 4300 ppd for config.

with option 2&3)
I get messages that the test pages i am trying to print are printing successfully but nothing is actually coming out at the printer. I can see them stuck in the print queue through the admin pages online.

Can you guys see anything i am missing?
Any questions to clarify or requests to post config files etc?

Thanks in advance or your help.
