I've got a good'old LaserJet 4L printer I would like to continue to use,
and possibly shared from a BSD system. To me, a good way to configure
the printer for Windows clients appears to be using a raw printer entry
in /etc/printcap and use the official or windows provided drivers on the
clients, directly. Those drivers can also be uploaded and made
available through samba for a quick printer installation on the clients.
For now I am simply using the 'lp' printcap entry on the bsd host and it
works pretty good as raw printer already. However each time I print
something from a windows clients I get an additional blank page. Does
anyone have a similar experience? Should I dig into either printcap,
the samba configuration or something else?
Here's the printcap configuration:
just the same as 'lp' but the spool dir. sh: is usefull.
Here's the samba configuration:
printable = yes
print command = /usr/bin/lpr -P%p -r %s
printer = raw
printing = bsd
path = /var/tmp
I am not sure about the path for the printer, is it supposed to point to
the spool dir?
