No such option [FIX]
Authored by: cj on Oct 17, '02 01:25:05PM
As lolopb suggested, this hint is incomplete -- you need to enable SMB printing from the command line before this option appears in Print Center:

In a terminal window, enter the following commands:

sudo ln -s /usr/bin/smbspool /usr/libexec/cups/backend/smb

sudo killall -HUP cupsd

then launch Print Center and follow the instructions in this hint to print to a Windows shared printer.

Hope this helps.

No such option [FIX]

Thank you cj! I added the shared printer in the Print Center BUT it will not print.

I followed the following steps:
1. Launch Print Center
2. Hold down the Option key while clicking the Add button (in the Printer List window)
3. Select Advanced from the first pop-up menu.
4. Pick "Windows Printer via SAMBA" in the "Device" pop-up menu.
5. Enter whatever you want in "Device Name"
6. Enter the URI in "Device URI". The syntax I entered was: smb:// [xxx.xx.x.x is the IP address that I use to mount the Windows box using smb]
7. Pick the printer vendor from the Printer Model pop-up menu <HP 2200>

Unfortunately when I print, it says "Stoped." If I try to restart the printer, it fails to connect.

The Windows printer is shared (I verified this from another Windows box). I am doing something wrong but I am clueless. If anyone has any suggestions, I would greatly appreciate them. Thanks.

I too have this exact problem. Jaguar on a powerbook 550 printing to a HP Laserjet 2100 on windows 2000. Works fine for other samba clients (ie non os x, like freebsd), and of course works fine for windows.

I followed these instructions in an attempt to connect from my IMAC to a Canon BJC4400 on a XP machine.

Instead of "Windows Printer via SAMBA" I get "Unknown Nework Device (smb)" needless to say I cant print. A connection attempt is made but then the Print monitor say 'STOPPED'.

Any ideas?
