The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 3109
printing from MS Access 2003 doesn't work
Last modified: 2005-09-27 08:17:06 UTC
samba/cups printer is set as default printer
MS Access 2003 cannot print. Cannot even make print preview.
It occures with at least HP 2200DN, HP 2300DN, HP 2420DN.
please make sure you have either (a) properly initialized
the driver on the server, or (b) set 'default devmode = yes'.
If (b) doesn't work, then make sure you try (a) as well.
"default devmode = yes" didn't help
printer drivers are uploaded using modern samba add printer wizard, i.e. clients
pull driver from samba on the fly, prin ting in general works except MS Access.
what do You mean by "properly initialized driver on the server" ?
Please read printing chapter in the Samba-HOWTO-Collection.
You have to get the client to set the PrinterDriverData values
and Device Mode on the printer.
everyone who reports a similar issue with Access, always
finds that initializing the printer share in on the Samba
host solves the problem.
