When trying to add the drivers downloaded & extracted from HP
(lj456ps.inf from lj632en.exe) I get the following message:
"Unable to install HP LaserJet 5P/5MP Postscript, Windows NT 4.0 or 200,
Intel driver. Operation could not be completed."
I also tried installing win95/98 drivers. In this case some files are
copied but then I get the equivalent of the above message for 95/98.
I am adding them from a windows XP machine. I am loggin onto the samba
shares with my account which is in the staff group on the server.
When I try to change some settings in the properties, like "hold
mismatched documents" I get an access denied error message.
Ive set up my smb.conf like this (relevant lines only):
printer admin = @staff
path = /var/prndrv
guest ok = no
browseable = yes
read only = yes
write list = @staff
/var/prndrv looks like this
drwxrwxr-x 2 root staff 4096 Mar 2 03:07 W32ALPHA
drwxrwxr-x 2 root staff 4096 Mar 2 03:08 W32MIPS
drwxrwxr-x 2 root staff 4096 Mar 2 03:08 W32PPC
drwxrwxr-x 2 root staff 4096 Mar 2 05:18 W32X86
drwxrwxr-x 2 root staff 4096 Mar 1 20:43 WIN40
and /var/prndrv itself has same ownership/permissions.
I am using samba 2.2.5.
The host specific log noodless.log (noodless is the win client i use to
add the drivers from), shows no error messages. It does give a lot of
messages, too much to quote here, but none of them are informative to me.
Help would be appreciated
