[Samba] Trouble with CUPS/SAMBA - Solved

Yeah, it really helps me that you come
after I managed to get ANYTHING out of
that printer, and say that all I do is wrong.

The versions are the the one installed by
RedHat Linux 9 (shrike). I installed the
printer using the redhat utility, and I
configured samba using, first the redhat
utility, and then fiddling with the smb.conf.

Any drivers used by the Windows clients are
their own (postscript). Dont ask me how
cupsomatic got in there, 'cause I dont know.

Until you can come up with a better idea of
installing the printer, I'll manage with this
one, thank you very much.

And just how is getting this to work properly
confusing to others?

Which versions of CUPS and Samba are you using?

And are you *really* still using the "cupsomatic"-PPD
from Linuxprinting.org for that *PostScript*-printer??

I fear it does more confuse than help -- unless
your version info is forthcoming....
