Windows Shared Printer

Postby dgoodma on Tue Feb 26, 2008 9:18 pm

I have a Brother 110C Shared Windows Printer.

I found Linux drivers for LPR and CUPS on Brother's Web Site. I installed the LPR first, then the CUPS.

When I use the Add Printer, Windows SMB, HOSTNAME prompts for user and password, enter that, I type in the Shared Printer name, when I select the brand, Brother, I do not see the 110C printer that I have installed the drivers for.

What am I missing?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Brother seems to work OK mostly but the install can be a bit challenging - you must follow the procedure strictly.
Can you see the printer in cups ( localhost:631 )?
