if your samba is compiled without libcups, then you should not set
printing = CUPS.

>From the smb.conf manual page:

   "For printing = CUPS : If SAMBA is compiled against libcups, then printcap = cups uses the  CUPS  API
   to submit jobs, etc."

If samba is not compiled against libcups, how should it be able to use
the cups api?
