    Default Printing From WinXP to Fedora Problem

    OK, I have set up my network to make Fedora my server. My wife's laptop is
    running WinXP Home. I am able to see each computer from the other computer
    and can share files. I also am able to install the two printers that are
    physically connected to the Linux box onto the WinXP box. I am not able,
    however, to get it to print from WinXP. I try to print a test page from
    WinXP and it says that the test page has been printed, but nothing happens
    at the printer. It's like it just disappears after leaving the WinXP box.
    Can anyone help with this? I don't know anything about cups, so do I need
    to do something with that?

    Thanks!!!

    I don't know anything about cups either, but probably your output is in some queue, waiting for the print-server to be started and empty this queue to the physical printer.

    Concentrate your search in the cups docu on starting print-servers would be my first guess...

    Let me know how this ends if you'd like, I'm having similar setup here...

    What are Software Patents for?
    To protect the small enterprise from bigger companies.

    What do Software Patents do?
    In its current form, they protect only companies with
    big legal departments as they:
    a.) Patent everything no matter how general
    b.) Sue everybody. Even if the patent can be argued
    invalid, small companies can ill-afford the
    typical $500k cost of a law-suit (not to mention
    years of harassment).

    Don't let them take away your right to program
    whatever you like. Make a stand on Software Patents
    before its too late.
