Wait, you don't print through CUPS? You print directly from client to
printer, but use Samba for driver distribution?

I used this for printer creation in CUPS, so I print directly via
jetdirect from CUPS as well:

| sudo lpadmin -p 5.4_Color_SOC-GP -v socket://w.x.y.z:9100 -L "Haus 5
Ebene 4 (5.4445)" -D "Color Printer GP (5.4445)" -E

Yeah, I didn't debug that part too much yet and concentrated on the
universal driver instead. Will check it again.

Thanks for your reply,
