Hi,

I just bought an epson stylus 7300 and hooked it up to my ubuntu 7.10 machine. I already have samba 3 running and i can see the shared directories from my vista laptop. I am trying to share the printer with my vista machine. I can see the printer when i search for network printers but when i try to print out a test page it either doesn't print (i.e no error messages says its sent the page to the printer, but page doesn't print) or it prints very slowly as it 5 minutes later all of a sudden the printer jumps to life and starts printing the page.

Any ideas where I can look and how I can fix the problem? Thanks in advance
