Re: 9.04 Network Printing Problems + fixed IP problem
Why not simply remove Network Manager on the machine with the printer and set up /etc/network/interfaces with a static IP? Here is one, as an example:
Substitute your details as needed. Also, please select an IP address outside the range of the DHCP server in your router. Mine allocates five addresses from x.100 to x.104.
iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet static
You might be able to do the same thing with BIND, samba, winbind and a rusty screwdriver, but this is so easy.
