printer sharing with windows
Authored by: cub78 on Dec 26, '02 07:23:09AM

I tried everythin to get my Epson Photo 925 , connected to an XP box, to be seen via Mac Os 10.2 Loads of wasted pages, tons of postscript stuff. In the end here's how I got it to work perfectly.
share your printer on your windows box
download Gimp-Print and GhostScript for free from http://gimp-print.sourceforge.net/MacOSX.php3
enable SAMBA by In a terminal window, enter the following commands:

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

sudo killall -HUP cupsd

then
Install GhostScript
Install GimpPrint
Goto 127.0.0.1:631
Add a printer
Give the printer a name
Select Windows printer via Samba
In the location type
smb://username:password@workgroup/machine/printer
Select Make of Printer
Select a GIMPS driver
Job done!
