Samba and CUPS

July 09, 2009 — BarryK
Forum member 'gerry' requested that /usr/lib/cups/backend/smb be a symlink to /opt/samba/bin/smbspool.

I presume that this is necessary to get CUPS working with Windows printers via Samba. Okay, I have added this to the cups packages in Woof.


yes, it is necessary

Thanks Barry. I can confirm that it is necessary. Otherwise you can't even see the SAMBA printer in the CUPS web interface during creation of new printer device. cheers!
