Printer, Part Deux
Posted by tim in Pissed on January 26, 2005

So I got the printer set up today, working with Samba.

It was a pain in the groin, but I was FINALLY able to get it all to work the way it's supposed to. It all boiled down to un-commenting some lines in the /etc/cups/mime.convs and /etc/cups/mime.types relating to application/octet-stream. I found the Debian and Windows Shared Printing mini-HOWTO - Sharing Printers With Windows PCs page to be of much help.

The thing that still bothers me is that the lights keep flickering, as if the printer is shorting out inside or something. I guess I should probably keep a fire extinguisher here in my room, just in case it decides to burst into flames.


You need to watch Napoleon Dynamite. Seriously.
