You can't limit logging to individual printers. You can only increase
the debug level for individual debug classes:


The "printdrivers" debug class looks like it can help you with print$
accesses. However, this won't help you if you want log entries each time
when a user prints. This you might better log in CUPS/LPD.

Alternatively, you can extract the information on Windows via login script:
You can write the file to a hidden share, where users are only allowed
to create files, but not to remove files created by other users.
