We recently upgraded our print server from ubuntu 9.04 to 9.10 and the 
print server does not work properly.

We are running samba 3.4.0 as PDC, file server and print server with 
open ldap. The problem that the default printer settings like duplex 
unit and memory size are not applied to the normal users with read 
permission. I login as an administrator from a windows client machine 
and set the device settings and default printing preferences. Then I 
login as a normal domain user, the device settings remains  unchanged 
and all grey out. As I am a normal user with read permission set up, I 
can not change the printer settings. But these settings are meant to be 
set properly when I login last time. Then I login as administrator again 
and I can see these device settings are properly set and saved. It used 
to work in ubuntu 9.04 but I do not know what I can do to fix this 
issue. Anyone has experienced the same or similar issue? How did you fix 
it?? Thanks.
