- do you mean there's a problem with the hplip extension or a problem with hplip & cups in general?
I haven't really got past samba problems. I've got two Dell latitude clones with basically all the same software on them, and identical smb.conf files. My XP computer sees one of them, no problem, but not the other. I've about exhausted every possible variable with the same result (changing it's place on the network, etc., etc.)
Also, loading samba.unc overwrites the edited /etc/samba/smb.conf files, and I haven't found a way to turn samba off and back on without rebooting. (there's no "smb restart", and it basically loads with the wrong smb.conf file.
If I get samba working, I'll try the drivers via networking. I had printing working, as I recall, only with a parallel port connection due to some problem recognizing the USB port.
Wouldn't it be nice to just plug your network printer into a router and have it immediately recognized? (just joking..
