Can you ensure, that you followed

If you completely followed the guides, and still having problems, please
provide more details, that allows us to help. E. g.
- Samba Version?
- Self compiled, Distro package, other package?
- smb.conf
- Full driver name incl. version
- Driver type (PS, PCL5/6,...)
- etc.
