>> I have a question about printer drivers management in Samba4 (Samba version
>> 4.7.6, Ubuntu 18)
> First, verify that drivers loading work, with another standard printer,
> eg, Apple Color LaserJet for examples.
> Secondly... driver loading is very 'picky'. Try to:
> a) load the driver 2-5 time subsequently, sometime work
Yes i did it soooo many times :)
> b) if the driver have some '.cab' file (mostly: multilingual) try to

it's not the case
> c) try different driver (eg: PostScript instead of PCL)
> d) load the driver in a windows box, then 'copy' them via RPC:
> I never used this way, but even if it works, MMC is managed by non
linux admins, so i really intend to make it work through MMC
> Some drivers are simply 'broken'. There's no way to make it work. ;-(
> I hope not ;)
