i've just encountered an unexpected samba's behavior.
I created a shared directory which will contain the drivers for all the
peripherals available on our network. The samba's entry looks like this :
path = /home/samba/softs/drivers
comment = Distribution de drivers
public = yes
only guest = yes
writable = no
printable = no
then I created 2 subdirectories named 'Imprimantes' and another one named
'Photocopieurs' under the /softs/drivers directory and I copied inside them
the drivers for some printers to check if everything worked. I set the same
rights ( 755 to both of them ) and the same user/group ( nobody/nobody )
When i tried to install a printer whose drivers are in the imprimantes
folder, it doesn't succeed to copy the files even i give the right path
manually. Although it worked with a printer whose drivers are located in the
For information i can copy the drivers files from the imprimantes folder,
it's only when I use the windows 98 'Add printer' function.
maybe it's coming from the inf file, or maybe from somewhere else but i'm
lost right now.
I hope my english was understandable and my problem quite clear.
