Hi all,

just found an old (Oct 9) posting "Print Driver Settings" from Michael 
Devogelaere regarding installing/using extra trays and duplex units using

We are using Samba 2.2.3a and HP and Tektronix printer drivers and
experience the same difficulties - users cannot select/use the duplex
unit without having "Manage Printer" permissions. Exactly as M.D. wrote:
"That way, everybody gets the correct seetings but can also modify them.
If we allow only 'Print-access' to everybody, they cannot read any setting 
at all." - and are forced to use the printer drivers default settings
(no duplex unit etc.).

Did anyone find any solution to this problem???

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
