I remember doing this before, but I am sure things have
changed in 11.3.
I have 2 printers setup on my OS 11.3 and want to share one
of them with a Win XP computer on my home network.
I can see and setup the printer from the Win box but it shows
a status of Access Denied.
I did check online:
This article is outdated and incomplete (in particular Samba
is missing and/or how to access a CUPS server directly from
Windows via IPP) and would need major changes and enhancements
to become actually useful.
I guess Win XP does not yet support to access a CUPS server
directly via its native IPP protocol so that I think you
need a Samba server running on the Linux server to provide
to the Win XP computers its traditional printer shares.
Since a longer time Samba forwards print jobs which it got
from Windowns explicitely as "raw" via a line like
cups options = raw
in /etc/samba/smb.conf so that also no change regarding
application/octet-stream in a mime.convs file should be needed.
But I am not at all a Samba expert.
but some things it refers to I just don't find.
* 1.1 Step 1: YaST control center
* 1.2 Step 2: Edit /etc/cups/mime.convs configuration file
* 1.3 Step 3: Restart CUPS server
I do not find the file in step #2.
Since CUPS V1.4b1 the standard MIME types are installed in
DataDir/mime (CUPS STR #2719 http://www.cups.org/str.php?L2719)
so that it is now (i.e. since openSUSE 11.3)
/usr/share/cups/mime/mime.types but application/octet-stream
should now be enabled by default so that no longer any change
therein should be needed.
