Is there a way to predict what the subkeys in here will be called if you are
using Samba+Cups+[print$] to manage your printers? It's calling the printer
the driver name, not the printer share name. I need to write a script that
checks for the existence of the printer and adds it if it is not there, and I
am running into a brick wall here because depending on the version of Windows
and whether the client is using the PS or PCL driver for some of these
printers, the driver might be called a completely different thing.
I understand that in 3.0.8 there will be a parameter to make the printer name
be the share name, not the driver name. I eagerly await it, but I need my
scripts to work possibly sooner than 3.0.8 will be released (I checked on
samba.org and no release date for it yet).
