As I now managed to run OpenELEC on my new RPi I wonder if and how I can this device use as a printserver. What I have done so far:
Created a samba.conf in /storage/.config to use at boot time instead of the read-only samba.conf in /etc/samba. In this file I turned "load printers" to "yes". The connected Canon printer is still not available. It is neither shown in Windows via the SMB in explorer nor available via a local TCPIP port in the windows printer installation. As no package manager is available in OpenELEC (aka apt-get) I cannot install cups or something else.
Is there a way to get OpenELEC to work as a printserver anyway?
