Thread: can't print to windows xp printer

  1. #1

    Default can't print to windows xp printer

    Using openSUSE 11.4 and winXP pro sp3

    I am a complete noob to linux.

    I went into YAST2 and added a printer--none were found. I used the connection wizard and selected Print Via Print Server Machine>>Windows or Samba.

    i entered the winxp info

    server: daddy
    Printer Share Name: HP4200
    Workgroup: MSHOME

    I selected HP for printer manufacturer. When I did test connection it said access test failed:

    Domain=[MSHOME] OS=[Windows 5.1] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager]
    ping: unknown host daddy


    Testing share 'HP4200' on 'MSHOME/daddy':
    tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED

    Share 'HP4200' on 'MSHOME/daddy' does not accept print jobs (share may not exist?)


    Host 'daddy' unreachable (network issue or wrong host or firewall active?)


    So i hit OK anyway, then selected

    HP Deskjet d4200 series hpcups 3.11.1.1.19

    the model is an HP deskjet d4260

    So then I print a test page----and the file is sent to the print spooler and the printer makes noises but then it stops:

    document name Remote Download Document
    Status: Printing
    Owner: Guest
    Pages: N/A
    Size 64KB/44.3 MB
    Submitted: 11:25:04 AM 4/10/2011
    Port: USB001

    I did this tutorial previously:

    How To Samba With openSUSE 11.2 and Windows and can successfully use the MSHOME workgroup.

    I then tried this tutorial:

    Printer Sharing: Windows Print Server for Suse/openSUSE Linux Clients [Samba and LPD]

    when i go to http://localhost:631/ to Add printer it asks for my user name and password, the site says CUP---I enter my root user name and password and it says Unable to add printer: Forbidden


    Please help! I am a complete Linux noob.

    There is a problem with apparmor on 11.4 that prevents samba from running.
    Go to Yast > Novell AppArmor > AppArmor Control Panel > Configure profiles
    and set AppArmor to complain for both usr.sbin.nmbd and usr.sbin.smbd rather
    than enforce.

    Go over the following two Howtos:
    http://opensuse.swerdna.org/suselanprimer.html
    and
    http://opensuse.swerdna.org/susesambaprint.html

    I'm not sure if these are the two you referred to or not, but these are good.

    Finally for CUPS the username should be "root" and the password root's
    password, by default root has the same password as the user you created when
    installing.

    Added comment, when I did an upgrade from 11.2 to 11.4 (x86_64)I discovered
    that the smb protocol was in the wrong library.

    Check to see if the file /usr/lib/cups/backend/smb exists
    Code:
    ls -l /usr/lib/cups/backend/smb
    If it does not exist then create the following link:
    Code:
    su
    ln -s /usr/bin/smbspool /usr/lib/cups/backend/smb

    ARGH--that was my error with CUPS..I had a user name "martha" and didnt use "root"----so i followed all of those steps in the tutorial:

    Printer Sharing: Windows Print Server for Suse/openSUSE Linux Clients [Samba and LPD]

    and the same thing occurred----file was sent from linux machine to the HP4200 where the whole file comes over but it freezes like this: 64KB/44.3MB

    So i installed the printer both through CUPS and the above method and it still gets frozen as above. What else should I try to troubleshoot??

    Have you tried different drivers. The OpenPrinting site gives a number of
    possibilities.

    http://www.openprinting.org/printer/...LaserJet_4200#

    A number of CUPS drivers that were installed automatically in previous
    versions may need to be added as separate packages. If the driver you want
    is not seen in CUPS, use Yast > Software > Software Management.
    Include "Provides" in your search and look for the missing driver.

    I looked on that site and the first driver recommended is HPLIP--is that what i installed? I installed:

    HP Deskjet d4200 series hpcups 3.11.1.1.19

    Is that part of HPLIP?

    I'm not sure just who provides that particular driver.
    Have you installed HPLIP, it is not installed by default.

    In a terminal window enter:
    Code:
    rpm -qa hplip
    If HPLIP is installed the above should return something like:
    hplip-3.11.1-6.1.x86_64

    If HPLIP is installed then you might want to look here for additional
    installation instructions:
    http://hplipopensource.com/node/118
    or even
    https://launchpad.net/hplip

    If hplip is not install use YaST or zypper to install the HPLIP package.

    ( Yast > Software > Software Management, Search for HPLIP and install.)

    You might also try one of the other drivers such as gutenprint or even
    postscript that are given on OpenPrinting.

    It seems to be a driver problem for the HP Deskjet D4260 printer. The driver works if I plug the printer in directly through a USB cable....but when I try through the network, the document sends correctly but it gets frozen in the at the 64KB/44 meg spot as I said above.

    I installed another printer that is on my network, and HP Photosmart and that works fine through the network.

    I installed the gutenprint drivers....but I dont know how to use them?!! How do I use those drivers on the HP deskjet 4260 to see if it will work on the network?

    crumpybumpy;

    Use CUPS, under driver choose the appropriate gutenprint file.

    However, have you checked the contents of: /var/log/cups/error_log to see if
    there is any information there?

    Are you using smb: or LPD: to connect to the printer?

    Have you tested with the firewall disabled on both the client and server?
    ( Be sure to enable the firewalls after testing )
