Thanks to Craig who almost by error helped me resolve the problem....
When he showed his entries, he included this line;
> printcap = cups
I was pretty sure this was meant to be "printcap name = cups" but
checked google, and came across these two links;
These two pages describe a somewhat similar problem to mine which was
resolved by modifying the printcap name attribute to point to the
printcap file (including the pathname).
So, instead of
printcap name = cups
I now have
printcap name = /path/to/printcap (as defined in my cupsd.conf)
After restarting samba, everything is working as expected.
So, apparently I shouldn't have to point the 'printcap name' to a
printcap, but I do. Anyone care to suggest why?
Big thanks again to Craig, and the others who replied to try and assist!
