Can someone please point me to an overview on how printing works with
As far as I can tell, there are 3 directories involved when printing
to a Samba-shared printer on a Linux system:
I was under the impression that incoming files were written to /tmp,
then copied to the printer-specific directory, then printed.
Obviously this understanding is wrong because I just found the
remnants of a couple old print jobs in /var/spool/samba.
So what's the story here? Exactly what path does a file take from
client machine to shared printer?
