So I recently updated to Hardy from Gutsy. In Gutsy, I was printing through the network to the printer on my XP box. (HP PSC 2355) When I updated to Hardy, suddenly I couldn't print. I've gone through the whole printer setup in ubuntu a handful of times, yet I just cannot figure it out.

When I print, or try to, the print queue shows the printer job, but just says "processing" and never gets past that point.

Any ideas are appreciated. :)

When I upgraded during the installation it asked if I wanted to keep the old samba.conf or use the new default one. Maybe that got overwritten? I'm far from an expert, and maybe that's stating the obvious, but try checking it, I think its /etc/samba/smb.conf

I'll give that a look, thank you. :)
