I use Debian sid with samba 3.0.5 and Cups 1.1.20 which work just fine  when printing from linux with lpr.

But when i try to add printerdrivers to Samba as root:

'cupsaddsmb -U petterei -v tex'

i get the following errormessage:

'Warning: No PPD file for printer "tex" - skipping!'

and /var/log/cups/error_log shows the following:

D [01/Aug/2004:01:05:49 +0200] AcceptClient: 5 from luci:631.
D [01/Aug/2004:01:05:49 +0200] ReadClient: 5 POST / HTTP/1.1
E [01/Aug/2004:01:05:49 +0200] get_printer_attrs: resource name '/printers/tex' no good!

D [01/Aug/2004:01:05:49 +0200] CloseClient: 5

Anyone know what that can be wrong?

Thanks in advance for any help!
