missing/incorrect links/files in printconf-0.0-15?
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:31:20 EDT
After installing rawhide 20010131, I tried printconf-0.0-15, which is a big
improvement over printconf-0.0-5 -- great work! I was able to get
remote-Unix-queue printing working.
I was not able to get SMB printing working from my Linux box to the
direct-attach printers hanging
off my Windows box. One problem is that I couldn't find the file
/usr/lib/rhs/printconf/smbprint, which is apparently needed for proper
operation. Perhaps it is in some
other RPM that I haven't installed?
I tried making a symlink /usr/lib/rhs/printconf/smbprint ->
/usr/bin/smbprint, and made the
seemingly-required symlink in /var/spool/lpd/<printername> from .config ->
account, but the print
jobs were still rejected by the Windows box (more details available, if
SMB printing worked fine for me
with recent rawhide releases, but I'm not sure if the current problem is
a printconf/printool problem or a problem with the latest version of
samba. I went in and tried to
directly submit print jobs to the Windows box via smbclient, and couldn't
get that to work either.
Another thing I found was the link /usr/bin/printconf-gui ->
/usr/bin/consolehelper ; I don't have the
latter file, perhaps simply because I failed to install the appropriate
yep, these are all addressed in the latest.
