Re: Problem: Setting up a Samba based printer in Sarge

My LAN is mixed Linux/Windoze and one of the printers is on a Windows box.
From my Debian Woody KDE desktop I can use SAMBA to access this printer
I have just installed sarge on my laptop, when I try to add the printer
from KDE's print manager dialog I am unable to browse the workgroup.
Clicking on the "scan" button brings up "WORKGROUP" but when I click the
"+" symbol to expand the tree it sits for a while and then gives up - no
view of the available shares.
Typing "smbclient -L <hostname>" at a command prompt displays the
available shares for the host (including the printer) so I'm assuming
that Samba is working correctly.
Does anyone have any ideas on what to try next?
Specify the hostname, workgroup and printer share name. Don't have to
scan for printers.
It onced worked in my sarge box though I found kprinter could scan
correctly again after a recent update.
