Hey Guys,

I'm using the following versions of software:

   - Ubuntu 12.04 LTS x64
   - Samba 3.6.3
   - CUPS 1.6.3

My clients are the following:

   - Windows 7 x64
   - Windows 7 x86

My printer models are the following:

   - HP Laserjet P4015DN
   - HP Laserjet CP3525N
   - HP Laserjet CP4005DN

I've installed the drivers via the point and print method found here:


I used the following drivers found here:

   - Windows 7 x64 -- http://goo.gl/asOXXA
   - Windows 7 x86 -- http://goo.gl/HRzddP

After I map the printers all is good, except that the end user's cannot
access the "Printer Preferences" so that they can adjust the settings for
duplex, non duplex, color etc...

I have no problem adjusting the "Printer Preferences" under the Advanced
tab and saving the settings to the server which get pushed down to the end
users, but sometimes they need to adjust their own settings.

The SePrintOperatorPrivilege privilege is set only for  the domain

I'm not sure where to look at this point to resolve that issue, but any
help would be appreciated.
