Hello all!

The situation:

[PIPPIN,linux] <---> [TOM,printer]

>From gandalf, I 'see' the printer, I can configure it, etc. Even I can
print, but the printer no prints :'-(

More info:


lp|impresora|tom: \
        :sd=/var/spool/lpd/lp: \
        :mx#0: \
        :sh: \


        printcap name = /etc/printcap
        load printers=yes
        log file = /var/log/samba-log.%m
        lock directory = /var/lock/samba
        guest account = nobody
        invalid users = root
        workgroup = La Comarca
        forceuser = nobody

        comment = Impresoras
        browseable = no
        path = /tmp
        printable = yes
        public = yes
        writable = no
        create mode=0700

        printer name=lp
        print command = /usr/bin/lpr %s
        create mode=0700

BTW, the doc to print appears, at last, in the /tmp directory, and if I do 
lpr /tmp/file

the file is printed ok.

Thanks in advance,
