First, how many computers? What OS does each computer run? To which computer is the printer connected and does it work fine there? What is your PC common Workgroup name? What is the Unique name for each computer? For help with Samba setup, please read through my complete blog here: S.A.C.T. - Samba Automated Configuration Tool - Version 1.06 - Blogs - openSUSE Forums

smb.conf is the main Samba configuration file. You find a full commented

samba-doc package is installed.

but for KDE SHARE: i try a folder click proprietery>share> add everyone and full controll and guest and click OK… but i’m not undy where is best to start guide steps steps and easy way ok?
first i try my computer tests after will worked then i will config all linux for scanner direct folder ok?

from windows: from printer and scanner send direct to folder, configured:
“\ISSR-MARIA\SCANNER-RICOOOH”
ISSR-MARIA it’s name netbios and “SCANNER-RICOOOH” it’s folder for shared (everyone) ok?

printer for all linux: worked as perfection!! but not for share smb/cfis … so i dont undy where is work…
i wait you thank you

Just a quick comment: Each PC needs its own name and can not use the same. By default Windows dreams up a unique name and so does openSUSE, but you can over ride this. I think you need to look again for the unique name each PC is using and it would not be the same as the Workgroup name. Further, I suggest you change the default workgroup to something else, the same on each PC but not the world wide default. Use the name of your dog, a cat, your wife or girlfriend’s name. What ever catches your fancy.

Thank You,
