This is a known bug in 2.2.3a.

Download the latest 2.2 branch from CVS and use that instead.

> Hi - I've managed to successfully set up our printer as per the 
> Printing HOW-TO, I'm able to print to the printer and upload 
> drivers using the Win NT print properties window.
> The problem I'm having is that I can't set any properties for the

> set default paper trays / paper trey assignments).
> Basically whatever settings I make are lost as soon as I close

> What I'm trying to do is have a couple of shares set up for the

> I'm logged in with admin (root) privileges - and as I said I can
