Problems printing files stored on windows shares
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:35 EST
Description of problem:
I store my odt-files on a windows server at work. I have mapped my shares by
using Main menu -> Places -> Connect to server -> Service type -> Windows share.
The files on the windows share can be opened, edited and saved, but not printed.
My attempts to print are completely ignored by the computer.
I connect to my printer through a windows network: Main menu -> System ->
Administration -> Printing -> New -> Networked Windows (SMB).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Connect to a windows share as described under the description of problem
2. Connect a printer as described above
3. Store an odt-file on the remote server
4. Open the document and try to print.
Nothing gets printed
I use GNOME. When I store the odt-files locally, printing is no problem. Also,
when I connect to the share by entering it in fstab, and use the mount-command
to connect to the server, I can print documents from the server without problem.
when you open such a document which cannot be printed, and use file->properties.
What is the "Location" field ?
The location field is empty.
There's a patch available to fix this. Will be in next respin for FC-5
Can you check with 2.0.2-5.12.2 and verify that it now works, and if not reopen
It works great now. Thanks.
