I have a small network, with four machines on a four-ports router. Three are under
windows (wife and kids not yet touched by civilization, alas
), and the fourth one
(mine) under VL5.8SOHO-final
I have a printer connected to my machine (it works locally OK). So I want to print
from the three other computers (and exchange files too). As a first step, It works
if I boot my machine under windows 2000 (dual boot), which establishes that there
are no problem due to firewalls under windows, and that the hardware works perfect.
But I could not print from any of the three machines under windows if my computer is
under VL. And I desperately want to be free from windows as soon as possible !
I tried the following:
From my machine under VL, I can ping all the three other (I obtained their IP adresses
simply reading the DHCP files in the router).
I can see their directories by typing in Konqueror smb://their_IP_adress, for
example: smb://192.168.1.101 and even browse in them if they are shared.
Now, if under Konqueror, I click on "services" in the left half of the browser, and then
click on "network browse" (I translate back brom french, could be slightly different
in english), I got the message that the Lisa daemon is not running.
I localized lisa in /opt/kde/bin/lisa, but if I try to start it by hand in console as
root, I get:
configfile not found
use the command line option --help and
take a look at the README for more information
I googled "configfile not found": some file named "lisarc" should be present, but
I could not find it in my computer.
Does somebody know:
1) how to manage to have Lisa running (BTW: is it necessary to print ?). Do I have to
create a "lisarc" file ? etc...
2) If Lisa is necessary, how to have it started automatically at boot ?
