remote printing for an USB printer
I have a HP photosmmart printer connected via USB to my Debian desktop.
On my android tablet,the "printershare" application found it immedialty,
without providing it any information (just: "look on the wifi network"). and
the installation was done in less that 10 seconds.
On my wheezy laptop, it's almost a nightmare. I tried all documented methods
(system-config-printer, http://localhst:631/printers), and
no one worked. My last attempt was to add in /etc/cups/cupsd.conf
That seemed to work, as lpstat -a showed me all the printer
queues of the server, and I could succesfully print a job, but:
- on the client, the job remains in the queues, and the printer is
marked as "stopped"
- on the server, the printer queue grows indefinitely, and the printer
spit page after page, until I cancel the job on the client, and all
jobs on the server.
I have exactly the same problem on a second laptop, also running wheezy.
What can I try now?
