The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 8135
Samba does not fill printers Location field when using cups
Last modified: 2011-05-17 08:33:54 UTC
If a cups printer is exported via samba, Windows clients do not see the
printers location field using i.e. Windows Explorer.
Günther and I have already a patchset to fix this problem.
Fix has been pushed to v3-6-test.
We might extend this more in next minor releases to
a) switch it off completely
b) make it possible to use the location information as the share comment (for share listings)
