Dear all,

with samba samba-3.6.0-55.1.x86_64 (openSUSE release), I can nicely upload printer-drivers using Windows XP. Unforunately I can not set any option, even the button to opten the printer settings is not there.

I could assign the uploaded printer driver to the printer via command-line:

# rpcclient -Uroot -c 'setdriver HP_LaserJet_p3010 "HP Universal Printing PS"'  HERKULES

Listening the printer via command-line gives me the excepted result, that also is reflected in the windows printer-dialog:

# rpcclient -Uroot -c 'enumprinters' HERKULES
Enter root's password:
	description:[\\HERKULES\HP_LaserJet_p3010,HP Universal Printing PS,HP Laserjet p3010 Serie]
	comment:[HP Laserjet p3010 Serie]

But still I do not see the printer's settings-button, any ideas why?
