> Have you tried adding the directive "use client drivers = yes" in the printers section of smb.conf?


I have not.  The reason is because in the man page I read "This parameter MUST not be enabled on a print share which has valid print driver installed on the Samba server."  

But in fact, I want to install printer drivers to the Samba server, and from best I can tell, it is installing them successfully.  The files are going into the correct path, and Windows is not returning an error.

Unless I am misunderstanding that option completely?
