[Samba] Cups + Samba : Unable to get jobs for
mercier at msi.unilim.fr
Fri Apr 9 12:22:35 GMT 2004
Hello all !
I encouter problems with samba / cups for printing from client machines
of the domain.
samba : 2.2.8a-0.1
cupsys : 1.1.20final-12.backports.org.1
clients : w2k sp4
The problem is extremely strange : when i log in on a client machine of
the samba domain, and try to print, Windows refuses and i get an error
message. I can then see in syslog the line :
Unable to get jobs for ipp://localhost/printers/hp -
I saw on the cups website that this error could be related to the
version of cups, and i decided to upgrade to the backports version. But
this hasn't changed anything, since the problem persists !
When i set the smb.conf option "printcap name = cups", i get the error
and the line in syslog. But if i "rem" this option with '#', i don't get
this message. Windows tells me that printing if ok, but it isn't and i
don't see any message about a printing spool in the logs.
Something interesting too : command line printing always works (a2ps /
lpr always works). And printing from another XP machine (not in the
domain, only in the workgroup) works too...
I'm completely lost !!!
If anyone has a clue before i spool my printers by the windows of my
Thanks in advance !
