The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 1740
CUPS integration does not work properly when not linked
Last modified: 2004-10-19 10:05:12 UTC
I have a Samba 3.0.6 server and a CUPS 1.1.12 server running on my machine.
They have been compiled with:
./configure --with-pam --with-pam_smbpass --with-quotas --with-sys-quotas
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/cups --with-cups-user=cups --with-cups-
group=cups --with-docdir=/usr/local/cups/docdir --with-
logdir=/usr/local/cups/logdir --with-rcdir=/usr/local/cups/rcdir --enable-ssl
As you can see, CUPS lies in an unusual path, so Samba did NOT see the cups-
config file and was NOT linked to CUPS. Your documentation states that even
without linking it should work fine, however, it doesn't.
# This file was automatically generated by cupsd(8) from the
# /usr/local/cups/etc/cups/printers.conf file. All changes to this file
# will be lost.
This is the printer I set up via CUPS. I can print to it using the CUPS web
interface (print test page).
My /usr/local/samba/lib/smb.conf looks like:
# Samba config file created using SWAT
# from 192.168.10.105 (192.168.10.105)
# Date: 2004/09/08 17:58:00
# Global parameters
workgroup = MYGROUP
netbios aliases = FILESERVER
server string = Dateiserver
security = SHARE
passdb backend = tdbsam
passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
passwd chat = *new*password* %n\n *new*password* %n\n *updated*
unix password sync = Yes
time server = Yes
deadtime = 15
printcap name = cups
os level = 65535
preferred master = Yes
domain master = Yes
ldap ssl = no
invalid users = root
admin users = flux
write list = flux
printer admin = flux
create mask = 0700
directory mask = 0700
printing = cups
print command = /usr/local/cups/bin/lp -c -d%p %s; rm %s
lpq command = /usr/local/cups/bin/lpstat -o%p
lprm command = /usr/local/cups/bin/cancel %p-%j
lppause command = /usr/local/cups/bin/lp -i %p-%j -H hold
lpresume command = /usr/local/cups/bin/lp -i %p-%j -H resume
queuepause command = /usr/local/cups/bin/disable %p
queueresume command = /usr/local/cups/bin/enable %p
(and then some file shares follow)
I cannot see the CUPS printers in my list (using Windows and smbclient). There
is no chance to print with my Windows clients.
Sorry, I have to correct myself.
It is CUPS 1.1.20.
if cups is not linked in then you will have to set
'printcap name = /etc/printcap' (where /etc/printcap is
the printer listing exported from cups.
