I am successfully using my network printer under cups. Now I would like to share this printer to all
windows clients with samba. These are my smb.conf configurations:
interfaces = eth0
load printers = yes
printing = cups
printcap name = /etc/printcap
printer admin = @mygroup
comment = Printer Driver
path = /daten/printers
browseable = yes
guest ok = yes
read only = yes
write list = @mygroup
comment = All Printers
path = /var/spool/samba
browsable = yes
guest ok = no
writeable = no
printable = yes
The rights for the directories are as follows:
myserver:/ # la daten/printers/
drwxrwxr-x 2 root mygroup 48 Nov 25 15:29 .
drwxr-xr-x 20 root mygroup 472 Nov 25 14:59 ..
myserver:/ # la /var/spool/samba
drwsrwsrwx 2 root root 48 Jan 28 2005 .
drwxr-xr-x 14 root root 368 Dec 13 2004 ..
Under my windows 2000 (and XP) client, I see my printer within the folder "PRINTERS". With
"properties->No->Advanced->New Driver" (Windows-Driver-Wizard) I can specify the driver and follow
all instructions. At the end, when I finish the wizard, a message "can not install driver. the
procedure could not finished" appears.
Within the directory /daten/printers NO DRIVER is installed!
The log.smbd file says, that the user opens the "print$" share, but nothing else:

I allready read a lot of posts about similar problems, but didn't find any description that would
fix my problem.
Did someone know this problem or see something similar?
