View Full Version : [ubuntu] Pages are Cut-off when printing on Windows Printer via Samba

January 9th, 2010, 11:48 PM

I have a Brother HL-1230 printer hooked up to a Windows XP Home computer which I access via Samba to print from my Ubuntu machine. Every other page I print gets cut-off at various spots, it is inconsistent but the printer is sometimes able to print a full page when I print from my Ubuntu machine.

I would like to be able to print straight from my Ubuntu machine via the network without having to boot into windows or manually transfer the file to the other computer hooked up to the printer to print.

Is there any solution to this? Is it Samba or is it my Ubuntu printer driver?

- Thanks,
