'''gonzo''' is running Linux Mint, has a Canon MX 310 printer attached via USB, and is sharing this printer via Samba in "share" mode (i.e. no password should be required).
 +

The smbusers file maps all users to "sambaguest", which is a user on gonzo which belongs to the lp group. I have also tried mapping it to the system's main user, who definitely has printing permissions.
 +
==Symptoms==
 +
* Two other Linux systems (one [[Xubuntu]], one Crunchbang) experience the same conditions with regard to the printer on gonzo:
 +
** When browsing for Windows/Samba printers, they can see gonzo and the printers it is sharing.
 +
** When attempting to print to the Canon via Samba, the system asks for username and password.
 +
** No valid combination of user and password seems to exist, including users explicitly added with [[smbpasswd]].
 +
** When the printer is set up using IPP, however, printing works just fine.
 +
* Two different Windows 98 SE systems (one in VirtualBox, the other running on hardware) share a different set of symptoms:
 +
** They can browse and access gonzo's shares.
 +
** They cannot see any printers on gonzo.

Setup

gonzo is running Linux Mint, has a Canon MX 310 printer attached via USB, and is sharing this printer via Samba in "share" mode (i.e. no password should be required).

The smbusers file maps all users to "sambaguest", which is a user on gonzo which belongs to the lp group. I have also tried mapping it to the system's main user, who definitely has printing permissions.

Symptoms

  • Two other Linux systems (one Xubuntu, one Crunchbang) experience the same conditions with regard to the printer on gonzo:
    • When browsing for Windows/Samba printers, they can see gonzo and the printers it is sharing.
    • When attempting to print to the Canon via Samba, the system asks for username and password.
    • No valid combination of user and password seems to exist, including users explicitly added with smbpasswd.
    • When the printer is set up using IPP, however, printing works just fine.
  • Two different Windows 98 SE systems (one in VirtualBox, the other running on hardware) share a different set of symptoms:
    • They can browse and access gonzo's shares.
    • They cannot see any printers on gonzo.
