Re: [hylafax-users] HELP!!!!! SambaFax
Thanks for responding.
Currently I have the following working correctly
Hylafax - I can send faxes through the command prompt
Samba - It has been working for about 6 months or so flawlessly
Cups - I can print to an actual printer just fine
When I type in the following, I get the following error msg.
mail:/usr/local/www/fax# lpadmin -p SambaFax -E -v sambafax:
lpadmin: add-printer failed: client-error-not-possible
Here is a portion of the CUPS log that shows the error msg.
E [24/Sep/2002:12:49:53 -0400] add_printer: bad device-uri attribute
D [24/Sep/2002:12:49:53 -0400] Sending error: client-error-not-possible

I did in fact get things working but it was definitely a bit of a pain.
ended up marrying the sambafax stuff for cups and then used FAX4CUPs for
part of my stuff as well. Then I just had to get the postscript generic
print driver from Adobe, and everything seemed to basically work.
I hardly ever use it however. What is your main problem?
I am not at home right now to see/remember what I did, but I can look
tonight. What exactly are you having problems with? Is cups seeing the
hylafax printer? I seriously think you shoudl combine the script for
hylafax that Samba2fax uses, and then rely on FAX4CUPS for the rest of
setup with cups.
