Cups, Samba and Print Queues

I saw the default print command settings and they are the same as lprng.
Only the lppause and lpresume weren't set. Not working yet... :(

The problem(?) is the job being transferred from the samba spool dir to the
cups spool dir. Actually not a problem, but I don't see a solution in this

Have you tried entering all those commands for control on the print queue in
your smb.conf which relete to cups? Worth a try.
