I have Samba 1.9.18p10 running on FreeBSD 2.2.8. I have an HP LaserJet
5L printer attached via my parallel port.
This is the section of the printcap for that printer.
scribe|Daves HP LaserJet 5L:\
I'm using magicfilter for the input filter.
In smb.conf I have this for the printer section.
comment = All Printers
path = /var/spool/samba
browseable = yes
# Set public = yes to allow user 'guest account' to print
guest ok = yes
writable = no
printable = yes
I'm able to select "scribe" my explorer and can try and add it, however,
the workstations say "The server on which the printer resides does not have
a suitable NULL printer driver installed." and I'm prompted to install a
driver on the workstation.
Is this what I must do? Is there any way for me to use this printer like
printer that are connect to our NT machines?
