Samba printer sharing doesn't work

I'm trying to share a printer over a samba server. There are both windows and linux clients that will access the share. The printer works fine in Arch as a local printer. The other shared samba resources is working like it should from the other machines. There is no firewall installet on any machine inside my network.

So there is something wrong with my samba printer setup.
Here is my smb.conf. I have left out the folder shares.

[global]
                                                                              
# workgroup = NT-Domain-Name or Workgroup-Name, eg: LINUX2
   workgroup = Hjemmenett
                                                                              
# server string is the equivalent of the NT Description field
   server string = Samba
                                                                              
# this tells Samba to use a separate log file for each machine
# that connects
   log file = /var/log/samba.%m
                                                                              
# Put a capping on the size of the log files (in Kb).
   max log size = 50

# Security mode. Most people will want user level security. See
# security_level.txt for details.  NOTE:  To get the behaviour of
# Samba-1.9.18, you'll need to use "security = share".
   security = user
                                                                              
# You may wish to use password encryption. Please read
# ENCRYPTION.txt, Win95.txt and WinNT.txt in the Samba documentation.
# Do not enable this option unless you have read those documents
   encrypt passwords = yes
                                                                              
# Most people will find that this option gives better performance.
# See speed.txt and the manual pages for details
# You may want to add the following on a Linux system:

# DNS Proxy - tells Samba whether or not to try to resolve NetBIOS names
# via DNS nslookups. The built-in default for versions 1.9.17 is yes,

   dns proxy = no
                                                                              
# Mapping for linux username to windows username.
   username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
                                                                              
# Printer setup
   printing = bsd
   load printers = yes
   show add printer wizard = yes
   printcap name = /etc/printcap
   printer admin = root
   lpq cache time = 20
   use client driver = no
                                                                              
[printers]
        comment = all printers
        printable = yes
        path = /var/spool/cups
        browseable = no
        guest ok = yes
        public = yes
        read only = yes
        writeable = no
                                                                              
[HP_PSC_750]
        comment = Printers and restricted access
        path = /var/spool/cups/tmp
        printer admin = orjanp
        browseable = yes
        printable = yes
        writeable = no
        guest ok = no

What would be the correct variable for path in printers and hp_psc....? Is there any obvious mistakes? What about permissions to the path variable. What would they be like?

I have also tried to get swat up and running without any luck. I thougt that might help me out. I have added

swat 901/tcp

to my /etc/services file, I was suppose to add someting to a /etc/inetd.conf file to, but I didn't find any. My /etc/xinetd.d/swat file looks like this

service swat
{
        port                    = 901
        socket_type             = stream
        protocol                = tcp
        wait                    = no
        user                    = root
        server                  = /usr/sbin/swat
        log_on_success          += HOST DURATION
        log_on_failure          += HOST
        disable                 = no
        only_from               = localhost 10.0.0.110
}

I'm able to add the shared printer on my WindowsXP machine, but when I try to print a test page i get the following error:

Test page failed to print. Unable to create a print job

Any tips on how to get this working? After several hours of searching, witout any luck, I just want to get my printer shared over my network.

Re: Samba printer sharing doesn't work

Are you using cups as your print daemon? In that case you'd have to change the printing line to cups.

I have pages on both cups and samba that might or might not help

http://home.nyc.rr.com/computertaijutsu/cups.html
http://home.nyc.rr.com/computertaijutsu/samba.html

(err, you can probably figure out which refers to cups and which to samba) 

Printing can be a complete pain in the neck, unfortunately.  If you are using cups, I think you would also change use client driver to yes, usually makes it easier.

Re: Samba printer sharing doesn't work

I did try to change it to cups, but with no luck. I still get the same error.

I see that you have a path under printers that says /var/spool/samba. Is it the same what the path is? Can it be anything as long as it is spesified in the path variable? My /var/spool directory contains /cron /cups and /mail. Can I make a random folder and put it in path in smb.conf? What kind of permissions do the folder need to have?
Both the path variable in smb.conf and /var/spool directory is somewhat a bit confusing. Some info would be appreciated.

Re: Samba printer sharing doesn't work

Hrrm, I have always taken that from the default smb.conf.  The directory was (I think) on all distros, automagically created when I installed samba
You can try doing a mkdir /var/spool/samba.  Looks like permissions are 777 by default.

Does cups work by itself, that is, without samba?

Re: Samba printer sharing doesn't work

Cups works, I can print in from my arch server where the printer is connected. I'll try to make a /samba folder.

Re: Samba printer sharing doesn't work

I made /var/spool/samba and /var/spool/samba/hp. Now I was able to send the test page to the printer without getting the error. But the printer didn't print anything. So I'm getting somewhere atleast. But still not working.
Do I have to specify the folders to cups in any way?

Re: Samba printer sharing doesn't work

Might be a cups issue.
Suppose the printer name is printer

Does echo hello | lp -d printer

print anything?

Re: Samba printer sharing doesn't work

I get the following error

[root@ArchLinux orjanp]# echo hello | lp -d printer
lp: unable to print file: client-error-not-found

But I can print a random file from kate without any problems.

Re: Samba printer sharing doesn't work

sounds like a cups issue then.  Check out my cups page and see if any of the things there help you.

Afraid I have no other ideas--C(an't)U(sually)P(rint)S(tuff) can be great or a total pain in the neck.

Re: Samba printer sharing doesn't work

Sorry, my mistake, it was to late for me.

[root@ArchLinux root]# echo hello | lp -d HP_PSC_750
request id is HP_PSC_750-3 (1 file(s))

It works like a charm.

So cups works, and I don't get any error printing from a Windows XP machine. But the printer don't print anyting when accessed from the windows machine.
Anyone with an idea?

Re: Samba printer sharing doesn't work

Can the Windows box access files on the samba box?
Does /var/log/cups/error_log show anything?

The only other thing I can think of is uncommenting that mime thing that I mention on my cups page.  (Too lazy to look for the exact file now).

Printing is indicated as cups, use client driver = yes, correct?

Re: Samba printer sharing doesn't work

The files is accessible on the samba box. Printing is cups and client driver is yes.
I'll have a closer look at your cups page later today.

Re: Samba printer sharing doesn't work

Hrm, yes, but it does seem a samba thing--I had suggested it was a cups issue when I thought that lp -d <printername> wasn't working.

I'm a bit stumped, to be honest.  It's probably something obscure that we're overlooking.

Re: Samba printer sharing doesn't work

I have the same problem, since I first configured samba, and could never fix it. I've looked everywhere. Hope you can make it work.

Re: Samba printer sharing doesn't work

Finally I managed to get swat running. I had hoped it would help me configurating my printer share, but no.

I order to get swat working I had to install xinetd and use it instead fo inetd. How to configure /etc/services and /etc/xinetd.conf there is help to be found at this page.

As for the getting the printer to print issue, it don't work and I do not know how to make it work.

In the swat/printer parameter there is an option to choose printer from a dropdown menu. My installed printer isn't listed in that menu. Anyone know why?

The problem, at least it seems like it to me, is that the spool file never is written to the /var/spool/someting folder. When I'm printing a file on the server, a spool file pops up in /var/spool/cups. But when I try to print from a windows machine through samba, it's never created a spool file in the printer path directory.

Any ideas anyone?

Re: Samba printer sharing doesn't work

Change the debugging level to something really high for cups (in /etc/cups/cupsd.conf), then try printing.  You should see enough information about the error in the cups log file then.

I bet it has to do with enabling the octet-stream mime conversion in /etc/cups/mime.convs.

Re: Samba printer sharing doesn't work

Now we might be getting somewhere. The error.log file gave me the following output.

E [13/Jul/2004:10:11:46 +0200] print_job: Unsupported format 'application/octet-stream'! 
I [13/Jul/2004:10:11:46 +0200] Hint: Do you have the raw file printing rules enabled?

Then I had to uncomment one line in /etc/cups/mime.types and /etc/cups/mime.convs. The line is at the end of both files, and is
application/octet-stream
application/octet-stream   application/vnd.cups-raw   0   -

Then I got a
Unable to open usb port device....
that required a "turning on the printer" before "turning on the linux box". So a simple reboot fixed that.

Suddently, I'm able to print from windows over samba. The error.log file was the answer to all my praires. No my world is again a happy place.

Thanks so much for all the help I've got. I will post my smb.conf file later, when I have cleaned it up. It looks like a mess now.

Thanks again. big_smile

Re: Samba printer sharing doesn't work

Glad you got it working--when it works out of the box it's great, but whe it doesn't, it can be frustrating--and often, setting debug level higher does no good.

Glad it was the octet stream one, I think I have that one covered on my page.  smile

The weirdest of all, is that the other computer can use my printer while I'm in windows, but in Linux, it can't print, and what's more, every program that tries to print crashes. I can print localy fine.

This is my smb.conf

# This is the main Samba configuration file. You should read the
# smb.conf(5) manual page in order to understand the options listed
# here. Samba has a huge number of configurable options (perhaps too
# many!) most of which are not shown in this example
#
# For a step to step guide on installing, configuring and using samba, 
# read the Samba HOWTO Collection.
#
# Any line which starts with a ; (semi-colon) or a # (hash) 
# is a comment and is ignored. In this example we will use a #
# for commentry and a ; for parts of the config file that you
# may wish to enable
#
# NOTE: Whenever you modify this file you should run the command "testparm"
# to check that you have not made any basic syntactic errors.

# This option is important for security. It allows you to restrict

# the smb.conf man page

Re: Samba printer sharing doesn't work

For one, your cups spool is set incorrectly.  /usr/spool/cups shouldn't exist.  Try /var/spool/cups.

you're right, but that did not fix a thing.

Re: Samba printer sharing doesn't work

Finally...I configured the printer sharing, through cups (added allow from 192.168.0.0/24), and then added the printer in the windows client as http://192.168.0.2:631/printers/deskjet and it worked.  big_smile
