The standard Berkeley printer daemon (lpd) does not directly support
SMB. So the usual way to handle this is to set up your input filter
(the "if=" field) to a script that calls `smbclient' -- and then to set
your print device ("lp=") to /dev/null.
So check your /var/spool/lpd/PhotoEX/filter script, and get back to us.

Dunno. That's weird. We've never had any trouble with this.
