Description Andreas Schneider 2011-05-14 09:17:35 UTC
If a cups printer is exported via samba, Windows clients do not see the
printers location field using i.e. Windows Explorer.
Comment 1 Andreas Schneider 2011-05-14 09:19:02 UTC
Günther and I have already a patchset to fix this problem.
Comment 2 Guenther Deschner 2011-05-17 08:33:54 UTC
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)
