Description Matthias Dieter Wallnöfer 2007-08-30 01:12:39 UTC
I thought to add also a bug for the missing printing support. So we could discuss here what should be implemented how and when!
The first step for me should be the print$ share for the printer drivers. I think since Windows computers generate her by default, also SAMBA 4 should that do rather than it wasn't done in SAMBA 3 (http://wiki.samba.org/index.php/Samba_as_a_print_server#Providing_Printer_Drivers_to_Windows_clients_with_the_.5Bprint.24.5D_share)

Andrew, is there a plan to modify the provisioning to automatically create the shares "print$" and if needed also "printers"?
Comment 2 Andrew Bartlett 2007-09-27 10:51:46 UTC
Sure, but only once we get printing support....
Comment 3 Matthias Dieter Wallnöfer 2010-03-28 13:11:40 UTC
At the moment this has very low priority.
Comment 4 Björn Jacke 2012-09-10 12:48:01 UTC
printing is supported in 4.0 now in the same level as before.
