I need to configure printing from Debian desktops joined in an Active
Directory environment. The print server is a Windows domain controller.
I understood I have to use
/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/samba/smbspool_krb5_wrapper instead of the
usual /usr/lib/cups/backend/smb (the former seems broken in Buster but I
hope a fix will come, see
However, I can't figure out the proper way to add this backend to CUPS:
- if I replace /usr/lib/cups/backend/smb with a link to
smbspool_krb5_wrapper, it will be overridden by a future smbclient
upgrade (and I can't use "normal" smb backend anymore),
- if I try to add a new backend by creating a link, say
/usr/lib/cups/backend/smbkrb5, that points at smbspool_krb5_wrapper, it
is not recognized by "lpinfo -v", even after restarting CUPS.
In your opinion, what is the proper way to use smbspool_krb5_wrapper?
