I had problems with printing when I started using samba.
Your printcap file looks OK. You should have these lines in
your smb.conf file -
printcap name = /usr/local/samba/lib/printcap
printing = hpux
load printers = yes
print command = lp -oraw -onb -d %p %s
You can remove the '-onb' option from the print command if you want a banner
page. This will leave the file printed in /tmp. We have a cron job that
cleans these files out every night. Otherwise, you could use this command to
remove the files after they are printed -
print command = lp -c -oraw -onb -d %p %s; rm %s
The '-c' option will copy the file, them the rm command will remove the file
from /tmp. I'm not use if you have to use the '-c', I just put it in to be safe.
