Description Steve Langasek 2007-11-23 12:42:09 UTC
Since 3.0.25, Samba has been defaulting to use printing=bsd as the default instead of printing=cups even when cups support is compiled in, due to what appears to be an inadvertent change in behavior introduced when merging some libreplace updates from samba4.  Perhaps this is intentional, in which case I think some documentation/explanation for the change is warranted; but it looks wrong to me and I think it should be reverted.

patch to restore 3.0.24 print system selection

the attached patch restores the pre-3.0.25 print system selection behavior, by migrating the relevant code from source/include/includes.h to source/lib/replace/system/printing.h
Comment 2 Stefan Metzmacher 2007-11-23 17:20:32 UTC
system/printing.h is useless in it's current stade as it has only samba3
specific stuff. So the fix is just not to use it and remove it
