Windows clients cannot connect to shared printers
Status in “samba” package in Ubuntu:
Status in “samba” source package in Precise:
Status in “samba” source package in Quantal:
Since installing 12.04 I can no longer connect my windows XP clients to my laser printers on the Ubuntu system using samba.
It works on 11.10 using the exact same smb.conf file.
I can see the printers from the windows clients, I can select it, I install the drivers locally from the windows pc. When I click next I get the message "Windows cannot connect to the printer. Either the printer name was typed incorrectly or the specified printer has lost its connection to the sever".
This is a deal breaker for me.
