I had a serious problem with all my WinXP (some SP1, some SP2) comps
printing over samba to a printer (both, Samba and printer on Kubuntu
(Dapper)). It printed, but it took easily 20 minutes to get the
printout. The file sharing worked very fast and there were no error
messages in Samba logs.
I have found the solution in message by *Walter Willmertinger*

from Tue Dec 7 16:24:02 GMT 2004 on this list. Some more info added
from other messages.
So, here you go:
* Using regedit in winXP, find
* Look for DevModes and DevModes2 and there delete all entries for Samba printers.
That's it. Sorry, don't know what it means but there are no problems
and it started immediately printing fast.
