Compatible printers
Authored by: mfkilgore on Nov 17, '02 11:52:45AM

First, thanks for all the good advice in this thread. I now have what appears to be connectivity between my mac (powerbook g4, osx 10.2.2) and my windows desktop (windows xp) via SMB interface.

Now when I print from the mac the print job shows up in the print q on my windows box... which is good progress. It then disappears off of the queue and does not print. Printing works fine from other windows boxes so I know the printer setup on the Windows box is correct.

My guess is that I have not matched the printer drivers correctly. My printer is a Brother MFC-5100C. No obvious matches in gimp list and the printer and while the driver is installed on my mac, it does not appear in PrintCenter as a choice.

Any ideas?
