I've an old hp1100 and ubuntu 9.10 and now upgraded to lucid prerelease. I can't see my printer on network (using smb://mycomputer on nautilus or \mycomputr from xp). As long as i will not restart smbd (on lucid: sudo restart smbd) my printer is not visible as network share. All file shares are always visible. My printer is visible and working after smbd restart
Any clue what might cause this ?
Easiest way to workaround this (at least in ubuntu 11.04 where this issue is still not solved) is to edit upstart smbd file located at:
and replace line:
start on (local-filesystems and net-device-up)
start on (local-filesystems and net-device-up and started cups)
