Cups admin manual says it is just to have smb.conf to include
printing = cups
printcap name = cups

I have tried to get a print out from a windows client to the linux 
hosted server for weeks now...

Printer: Lexmark-z53 on usb
Linux distr: Suse 9.0
Kernel: 2.4.21-166
Samba: 2.2.8a-139
Cups: 1.1.19-85
Windows XP client.

cups error_log never gets the print command.

Cups works fine when printing from server and other linux box.
Samba on printer server works fine when accessing shares and uploading 

For the windows host I add a raw printer. I expect that the lexmark 
drivers will do all processing at client side.

Any ideas?
