Using a novell shared printer from debian.
Dear my friend.
I am new in debian. I am the only
one employee who uses linux at our office. we use microsoft and novell.
I don't have any problem to use the
resource of windows environment but for the resources of novell shared
for example I can not print any document
from my debian box onto a shared printer. This printer is shared by a novell
server. the ip of the server is 192.168.23.1 and the name of printer is
So I downloaded ncpfs and try a simple
printer with this way:
nprint -S 192.168.23.1 -U firdaus -P
pinter -q Q8111 ./testing.txt
It printed properly.
But I don't understand how to make a
default printer set up in my KDE. I use the printer setup menu of
the Control Center but I don't know which option I should choose in making
my debian can print onto a netware shared printer.
I tried this one beside using the control
ln -s nprint lpr
but of course this one is not sufficient
because: no value for ip server, no username, no password and no printer
and this way is also wrong :
ln -s "nprint -S 192.168.23.1 -U
firdaus -P pinter -q Q8111 ./testing.txt
So how can I make the correct printer
setup so I can print from my debian box properly?
Thank you very much in advance.
