I posted this in the printing forum a few days ago, but that doesn't seem to get much traffic... So here goes.
Here's my situation, in my house we have a small wireless network that consists of a router, a windows computer connected via cat5 cable to this router, a windows desktop connected wirelessly, and my Linux laptop also connect wirelessly. We have an HP 1310 printer connected to the windows computer that is wired to the router, and this printer is shared with the computers on the network. The wirelessly connected XP machine can print documents with out a problem, however my Linux machine is having some issues. When I open the "printing" GUI it will detect both the host computer and the printer type. I enter my password twice (which I assume is my username password, if its not what would it be?) and install the correct driver. After all this, in the "printing" window it says the the printer is ready. However if I send a document to be printed, the icon appears in the system tray and at first everything seems to be going fine. But nothing ever prints, the light on the printer just flashes like the job has been paused. The windows printer monitoring program (I forget its name) recognizes there is job but doesn't know what to do with it. Does any one have an idea of what could be the problem here? I am very new to linux so it could be any number of things, but any help is greatly appreciated.
