TurbpPrint Printer Monitor is broken

I have set up TurboPrint on a SuSE Linux system to support a Canon printer that is connected to a Windows2000 machine on my network. I am having a LOT of difficulties getting this to work reliably but will focus for now on a problem that has recently come up and is a show stopper at the moment... Th...

printing from another linux laptop

This is a followup to my previous posting... I set up TurboPrint on a Linux laptop which can see my Linux gateway computer where I had set up the first instance of TurboPrint. The gateway computer sends the print jobs to a Windows2K system that it can see using the smb CUPS backend as we previously ...

Partially SOLVED!

OK my last posting got me to do a bit more investigating... I took a look in /usr/lib/cups/backend just to see if anything was there and sure enough there was a link for smb to /usr/bin/smbspool SO I decided to try an experiment and put this same link in /usr/lib64/cups/backend THEN printing a testp...

setting cups url does not seem to help

I could not figure out how to set the CUPS URL via either the CUPS web frontend though I can bring it up, nor via the KDE printer setup tool.. Both tools are rather confusing to use IMHO... Anywise I tried a number of combinations for the device URI, in /etc/cups/printers.conf as you suggested, with...

I have sent you the log files as per your request. I have a couple of observations that may be important... 1. Something seems odd about the TurboPrint Control Center configuration process. I set up the printer using the Windows network printer connection and the URI seems to be valid - Canon@darkst...

Nada still no joy getting this to send print jobs

:( OK I have followed your suggestions, again trying different permutations as well, but I still cannot get anything to print out.... Additionally, you may have to enter "guest" as user name. I tried using guest, no joy... The parameters "Workgroup" name and "password" are not required, unless - the...

Printing to Win2K printer

Well I am defeated... been trying every which way I can think of to get this Turboprint to work but no joy.... I have installed TurboPrint on my SuSE11.0 system (the installation went far better that it did for me on SuSE10.3 where it utterly failed to even start. ) I have a Canon Pixma MP780 printe...

No joy!

Thanks zedonet for replying! I checked with YaST's runlevel services manager to see if the CUPs daemon is started automatically when I boot up and it is. So just for grins I followed your suggestion to do a sudo cupsd. When I tried that as a regular user it did ask me for the Root password but then ...

Install of Turboprint2 failed under SuSE10.3

Got me beat! I downloaded the rpm for Turboprint 2.02, bought a license key, and used Yast to install it.. All "appeared" to install fine, got TurboPrint Monitor and TurboPrint Control icons sitting happily on my desktop... Try clicking on em and NOTHING happens.. No error message boxes pop up.. nad...

I am using Samba to connect to the printer on the Windows 2000 system from my Linux server, then using CUPs to provide network access to the printer for other Linux systems. (I know, seems ver...
