Printer on LMDE won't print PDFs sent from WinXP

Postby MoreHaleem on Fri May 17, 2013 5:02 pm

I'm using LMDE (32-bit desktop PC) as a print server for 2 laserjet printers. There are Linux and Windows machines on the network, and they are all able to print to the two network printers, but the Windows machines cannot print PDF files to either printer. No error message appears, and no document shows up in the print queue.

I've tried other PDF readers on the Windows machines, just in case Adobe Reader was the problem, but no luck.

The printers are:
HP LaserJet 1100 (HP LaserJet 1100, hpcups 3.12.6)
Dell Laser Printer 1700 (Generic PCL 6/PCL XL Printer - CUPS+Gutenprint v5.2.9)

Are the windows machines trying to send raw PDF data to the printer and I just don't have some necessary package installed???

Thanks for any help!
