I am nearly on my wits end. Everything further from here will likely involve
increasing the Samba debuglevel to 3 and more and do a detailled analysis of
what is going on and why the WinXP-SP1 client thinks it gets no proper PS
driver files offered....
One quick (new) thought, though:
What is the PPD you use for the Canon_BJC like? Can you post the output of
"head -n 40 /etc/cups/ppd/Canon_PJC.ppd" (or some more or less lines, to show
the PPD header)?
Can you check the syntax of the PPD online at http://www.cups.org/testppd.php?
Maybe you should also post the problem on one of the CUPS mailing lists, to
draw the CUPS developers' attention to it.
