The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 3135
Add Printer Wizard Driver Installation. Fails with access denied.
Last modified: 2005-10-06 06:13:33 UTC
I had been using 3.0.11 and added a lot of printers following the info at
"Chapter 20. Classical Printing Support" using the "Add Printer Wizard Driver
Installation" on XP client.
I went to add some more printers using version 3.0.20 (upgraded a while ago) and
it gives me errors:
- Open Windows Explorer, browse to the Samba host, open Samba's Printers folder,
right-click on the printer icon, and select Properties and select "No"
- Select printer Driver
- It copies driver files to server
- Apply settings and you get "Printer setting could not be saved. Access is denied."
I have not altered my smb.conf
printer admin = andrew
comment = Printer Driver Download Area
path = /usr/local/samba/var/drivers
browseable = no
guest ok = no
read only = yes
write list = andrew
I went back to 3011 and it did all wotk again and 3020a did not seem to help me...
Any thoughts. It may be that the HOW TO is out of date now.
The driver upload process has not changed with the
exception of of using the SePrintOperatorPrivilege
rather than the 'printer admin' parameter.
Can you attach (not an inline comment) gzipped a level 10
smbd debug log of the failure? Thanks.
I think it is user error. I just noticed that I had added one line to the
smb.conf "use client driver = Yes" which reading the manual pages may cause
the problem. If I set "use client driver = No" then all works fine.
Sorry for wasting any ones time...
