Thread: printer sharing with samba

    Default printer sharing with samba


    I have configured file sharing between suse and xp machine with a big help on this forum. Now I would like to do printer sharing.

    Output from:

    smbclient -L darko
    "darko" is a computer where is my printer installed.

    	Lexmark         Printer   Lexmark E250d
    Domain=[DARKO] OS=[Windows 5.1] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager]
    Printer I wanna share is this one:
    "Lexmark Printer Lexmark E250d"

    I am not sure what to configure in firewall.
    I tried to add smb printer via yast, but it could not locate it.
    Network name is "MSHOME"

    Default Re: printer sharing with samba

    Iit looks like yo uwant to print from a liniux client to a windows server using Samba. Try this tutorial and then ask questions if you get stuck:
    Printer Sharing: Windows Print Server for Suse/openSUSE Linux Clients [Samba and LPD]

    (Just a caveat: I can't seem to get Samba running OK on the experimental desktop KDE4 in openSUSE 11.0; ver 11.0 KDE3.5 and Gnome are fine)
    Leap 42.3 & 15.1 &KDE
