** Please reply directly to ian at **

Does anyone use PDQ for printing with Samba?

If so, please could you tell me what options to use in smb.conf??

Mainly, what do I use for the printing option?
Can I just use:
printing = bsd
print command = pdq -P%p %s; rm %s

Or, can I not use PDQ, because there is no setting for it on the printing


Bye for Now,
