http://forums.opensuse.org – Hello all I'm having trouble getting my networked printer to print and am hoping someone can lend some advice. I'm running openSUSe 11.3 on a laptop and the printer is connected to my desktop which is running Windows XP. I have the printer and several folders and drives shared. I can see the folders and drivers on my laptop but I cannot get the printer to actually print. It is an HP printer but I am not using HPLIP. I can send a print job to the queue and the printer resets itself like it's going to print but nothing else happens and the print job just sits in the queue unt (Distributions)
