The print command is the exact command samba runs when you request it to do
a print job.
What command is in /tmp/run?
What do you have for your printing = parameter?
Keep things simple. Try something like:
/usr/bin/lpr -PRealPrintQueueName %s as your print command.
It is best to include the entire path for your print command.
Make sure you have the right printing= parameter for your system.
