I had the same problem with our Deskjet 2500c.  From what I could tell it
was a driver compatablity problem with Samba.  I was never able to get it
working, hope you have better success than I did.  If you have any
LaserJet's around I would suggest setting them up just to verify Samba is
working fine.

Subject: [Samba] Getting "Access Denied" for printer share

I am getting an access denied for the printer from windows installed

Below is my smb.conf file

Can anyone help me to figure out what is wrong

The machine is a member of the domain and the users are added to the Linux
server and smbpasswd file

	workgroup = <domain name>    ****This is actually our domain
	netbios name = <machine name>  ****This is a unique machine name****
	server string = Print Server on %L
	log file /etc/samba/log.%m
	log level = 3
	max log size = 5000
	password server = xxx.xxx.xxx.5  ****This is actually our domain
	domain logons = no
	security = domain
	encrypt passwords = yes
	debug level = 3
	load printers = yes
	wins server = xxx.xxx.xxx.5 ****This is actually our wins server

	guest ok = yes
	browseable = yes
	path = var/spool/lpd/hp_dj_952C  ****path to the print cue on the
linux server****
	print ok = yes
	printcap name = /etc/printcap
	writeable = yes
	map to guest = Bad User
	guest account = printuser  ****this account has basic user
privaleges to print and write files to the tmp directory and the printer
spool directory.

Please help.  I simply cannot figure out what I am doint wrong
