Like the subject line says, I'm using cups/samba on centos as a print
server for xp workstations.
Works great, except for one printer which refuses to cooperate. All
printers are connected via built-in network card and communicate on port
hp designjet 5000p - works
hp designjet 1050c - works
hp 8750 - works
okidata c5200n - does not work
(yea i'm seeing a trend there with the brands...)
anyway, everything is setup in cups as a raw printer, and shared out via
xp desktops download printer driver automatically from samba (nice).
almost all went smoothly, but the oki just mysteriously refuses to print
with a "Printing Failed When Starting The Document"
btw, this is a "windows only" printer, which I thought I could circumvent
with raw printing, since the clients really are xp.
