The drivers need to be copied to the directory returned by the "getdriverdir"
rpc command. On my system the output looks like:
rpcclient $> getdriverdir
rpc_pipe_bind: Remote machine localhost pipe \spoolss fnum 0x772d bind request
Where the network share maps to /var/lib/printers. My interpretation is that
you need to create two new directories on your system.
And the directories need to be writeable over the print$ share by the user you
run rpcclient as.
If you don't mind changing your arrangement so that the print jobs are
rendered on the Linux host and a standard PostScript driver is distributed to
the clients, you might have a look at the following article:
Character is doing the right thing when nobody's looking.
There are too many people who think that the only thing
that's right is to get by, and the only thing that's wrong
is to get caught.
