I have a Debian laptop and an OS X desktop computer.
on the Mac I have set up windows file sharing and I have set up print sharing.
I then proceded to install samba and komba2 on my system....all set up and
komba2 sees mt workgroup and sees the shared printer...it registers it with
CUPS and everything........
however, I tried printing and nothing happened. I checked CUPS on the laptop
and it siad it could not connect to the remote printer...
I tried setting up a new printer in cups and everything seemed ok, CUPS said
that it was able to connect and everything.
so I try printing again....nothing.
I checked CUPS on the Mac and it did not register any job at all. I saw that
the device was pointing to /dev/null on the Mac so I fixed that...still
why can I browse the printer in Komba2 but CUPS is getting bad settings?
what am I doing wrong?
