/**
* Install the printer using USB printing support, and the "Generic / Text Only" driver,
* then share it.
*
* Use a WindowsPrintConnector with the share name to print. This works on either
* Windows or Linux.
*
* Troubleshooting: Fire up a command prompt/terminal, and ensure that (if your printer is
* shared as "Receipt Printer"), the following commands work.
*
* Windows: (use an appropriate "net use" command if you need authentication)
* echo "Hello World" > testfile
* ## If you need authentication, use "net use" to hook up the printer:
* # net use "\\computername\Receipt Printer" /user:Guest
* # net use "\\computername\Receipt Printer" /user:Bob secret
* # net use "\\computername\Receipt Printer" /user:workgroup\Bob secret
* copy testfile "\\computername\Receipt Printer"
* del testfile
*
* GNU/Linux:
* # No authentication
* echo "Hello World" | smbclient "//computername/Receipt Printer" -c "print -" -N
* # Guest login
* echo "Hello World" | smbclient "//computername/Receipt Printer" -U Guest -c "print -" -N
* # Basic username/password
* echo "Hello World" | smbclient "//computername/Receipt Printer" secret -U "Bob" -c "print -"
* # Including domain name
* echo "Hello World" | smbclient "//computername/Receipt Printer" secret -U "workgroup\\Bob" -c "print -"
