My Desktop is running Ubuntu 14.04 with a Canon MP490 printer connected. I am wanting to share the printer to a Gateway laptop running Windows 7.

The printer prints fine from the desktop. The laptop was able to discover the printer and I installed the drivers. Everything looks normal and like it should work. When I try to print from the laptop it doesn't work. It looks like it is sending the job to the printer then nothing happens.

I have been searching Google but have not come across an answer that has worked. I am a bit lost at this point. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Here is what my samba configuration looks like:

workgroup = sandman
server string = UbuntuDesktop
netbios name = srvr1
security = share
map to guest = bad user
name resolve order = bcast host
dns proxy = no
username map = /etc/samba/smbusers
; encrypt passwords = yes
guest ok = yes
; guest account = nobody
printcap name = cups
printing = cups

comment = Videos and Movies
path = /home/harvey/Videos
writeable = yes
; browseable = yes
guest ok = yes

comment = Public folder.
path = /home/harvey/Public
writeable = yes
; browseable = yes
guest ok = yes

comment = Photos
path = /home/harvey/Pictures
writeable = yes
; browseable = yes
guest ok = yes

comment = Music
path = /home/harvey/Music
writeable = yes
; browseable = yes
guest ok = yes

browseable = yes
printable = yes
public = yes
create mode = 0700
guest only = yes
use client driver = yes
guest account = smbprint
path = /home/smbprint
