I am so very sorry, that I have not been *constatntly* watching
the list for your feedback, and that once I had responded to
your second mail also, your "SOLVED" mail appeared within a
minute in my mailbox.
Now that *some* feedback from you is forthcoming, it is not what
was asked for, unfortunately.

I tell you:
* You was posting a smb.conf with a
"print command = lpr -P %p -o raw %s -r" and some
other manually set commands.
* Your posted smb.conf is quite in opposition to what
the smb.conf man page advices.
* The "man page" says this: ".......If SAMBA is compiled against
libcups, then printcap = cups uses the CUPS API to submit
jobs, etc. Otherwise it maps to the System V commands with
the -oraw option for printing, i.e. it uses lp -c -d%p
-oraw; rm %s. With printing = cups, and if SAMBA is com-
piled against libcups, any manually set print command will
So *your* questions have been ansered. Maybe not well
