    Default Printing PDF


    Not sure where to enter this,
    being a newbie to Linux in General and Suse in particular, I installed
    the x64 version of 11 over the weekend. I have managed to configure
    printing onto a windows network machine, but can not print pdf files.
    Any ideas why, I am using Evince Document Viewer to open the files.

    hi and welcome here...

    let me ask as windows user... if you have on the windows network winxp
    that serv some printer and win9x pc connecting to this network. Did you
    needed to configure printer in last win9x? for sure you need to install
    drivers for this system. They normally contain at server PC...

    why you think you should not make this in linux? did you try to install
    any drivers?

    in some cases it is possible not installing anything if your printer is
    support ps(postcript) by hardware so linux will send ps data to it...

    same with pcl but you should send pcl data

    'Ghostscript: Ghostscript' (http://www.ghostscript.com/)

    look at other page description languages

    maybe this help you... or just install drivers for your printer and
    send raw data at your samba printer...
