Hi Glen,

Yes. Would you please send your smb.conf?

I think I have tracked to the cause of the problem. I have set my printer to
raw device as it is a HP LaserJet 5P (no postscript). I have installed the
cups and adobe printer drivers, but can't get them to go into
/var/lib/samba/printers using cupsaddsmb. Access denied all the time. The
add button is grayed out. Also cupsaddsmb keeps complaining that it can't
find the ppd for HP5P. Could raw device be the cause of this?
