Thanks to the help here and hints over on the SME forum, I got printing
Basically you have to be logged in on the domain with an admin user and
THEN install the printer drivers.
So first I had to unistall the drivers, using a local admin user account.
Then I had to log in to the domain with an admin user. For this I
needed the line:
admin users = user1
And I had to spell that right (I had 'admin user' and I did not note any
error in starting smb services).
Then I installed the driver from this user and it could print. I could
then log in with a non-admin user and they could also print.
So anyone that has some control over wiki content for Samba might want
to put this in for local printer installs:
At least if your printer is a network attached printer and you are
printing directly to it, you install the printer drivers while logged in
as a domain admin user.
