[vox-tech] According to linuxprinting.org

Are you guys getting tired of me and my constant questions yet?

Today I purchased an Epson Stylus Photo 820 printer.  I purchased this 
printer for two reasons: first, I knew that it would work in our setup with 
two win98 machines and a win2k machine; and second, because according to 
http://www.linuxprinting.org, the Linux driver for this particular printer 
works "perfectly".

I have the printer now hooked up to one of our Windows 98 computers.  It 
works perfectly when I'm running Windows 2000 on this computer, and it 
works perfectly when my wife prints to it from her Windows 98 
computer.  But when I try to print from RH7.2 on my computer, the following 
happens: one sheet feeds all the way through, and another sheet feeds 
halfway through and then stops.

I used printtool to select Windows printer and a Samba connection.  I went 
ahead and selected "Raw print queue" on the theory that the data would end 
up being filtered twice on its way to the printer if it also went through 
the driver on the windows 98 computer (though I also tried it with several 
different drivers selected).

In the print monitor window on the windows 98 computer which hosts the 
printer, nothing shows up for the spool.  All of this leads me to believe 
that there might be something screwy in my samba configuration, but who can 
say for sure?  Any thoughts or suggestions before I start screwing around 
with my samba configuration files?

Oh, and Peter...  Sorry to take so long to get back to you on this, but 
yes, I do play D&D.  Or I did.  I fell out for a long time to indulge in 
LARP, and then I got involved in Call of Cthulhu.  Now a buddy of mine and 
I are creating an RPG of our own, so I've been play-testing that.  Some 
friends of mine are trying to set up a "gaming association" in 
Davis.  Would you be interested in hooking up with them?
