I'm trying to set up a network printer share through samba. I enabled "guest ok" in the smb.conf file for the printers:
and so now I can actually see the printer on my samba network. But when I set the authentication details and click "verify" I get a print share inaccessible error.
comment = All Printers
browseable = no
path = /var/spool/samba
printable = yes
guest ok = yes
read only = yes
create mask = 0700
Searching the net for solutions, I discovered that one bug is the printer name can't contain spaces. So I changed the printer name so that it has the following samba address:
Of course I restarted samba and tried again to verify authentication, but it failed again with the same print share inaccessible error.
Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
P.S. I'm running Linux Mint 13 64-bit MATE on both host and client.
