I'm still struggling with this, and people keep asking me why the PDF
printer still isn't working...does anyone have any suggestions?

Subject: PDF printing problem - can't find Samba's file?
I'm sure this is something simple, but I can't figure it out.
After a printing system upgrade, my old PDF-writer script (which acted as an
lp input filter) stopped working. I took this as an opportunity to rewrite
it to work straight from Samba. But I'm having an odd problem -- I can't
find Samba's job file. Here's the entry:
path = /export/spool
printable = yes
guest ok = yes
print command = /usr/local/bin/mkpdf2.pl %s %U %I >>/tmp/pdf.log
lpq command =
lprm command =
I had the script print out the parameters it got. It's getting filenames
Note that there's no path on the front of that filename, like I expected
with %s. And sure enough, the file isn't in /export/spool. In fact, I
can't find it *anywhere*. Any ideas where it's going?
