dear samba users
I have been searching the online documents, howtos and such yet I did
not find an answer to my question/problem, so if you have any hints for
me that would be much appreciated....:
We are trying since two days to install Windows XP printer drivers from
the "Add Printer Wizzard" in Windows onto a Samba 3.0.24 installation.
We created the [print$] share as recommended, created a user that is in
the printer admin list in smb.conf (and that has write access to the
driver store). When installing a driver, we get an obscure error
message that a printer driver can not be added because some permission
In the samba machine, the Windows machine created some directories in
the driver store area named "__SKIP......".
This drives me slowly, but surely, nuts...
