Print to Mac-connected USB printer from Windows
Authored by: ichesnut on Dec 15, '04 10:30:31PM

I followed these instructions, however, I cannot print a test page from the CUPS web interface from neither my iMac, nor my XP machine. The interface says "Processing since", and an lpstat says "GenericClass:waiting for device". The same thing happens when I try to print from the XP machine and view the lpstat and the CUPS web interface. I have installed the HP Photosmart 7350 (inkjet) driver on the iMac, and I can print, just not using the CUPS interface or from XP. The OS is panther. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I've been hacking away for over a week. Thanks.

Print to Mac-connected USB printer from Windows

I have what looks to be a similar problem. I get a "No pages found!" error when I run a test page.

I checked the error.log in /private/var/log/cups/ and found the following error. Something to do with the pstocupsraster. No idea what is going on. I've given up on using CUPS on 10.3.7. Frustrating because I know a few updates before 10.3.7 it worked.
