Not but a short while ago I was asking how to get a windows client to
print to a linux server using cups. Anyways, I found out it was
actualy a combination of 2 steps.
First I had to uncomment the following in mime.types in the cups dir
and the following in mime.convs
application/octet-stream application/vnd.cups-raw 0
next I had to put the following line in my smb.conf under the
apropriate printer group
print command = /usr/bin/lpr -o raw -P%p -r %s
after I took these steps windows prints to my linux printer like a
charm. I did check for the option to disable bidrectional suport but
most everything including that opton was disabled and greyed out.
Thnx for evryones posts that got me on the right path.
