I have CUPS 1.1.23 on Suse 9.1. I want to config CUPS for driver download
and share the printer to windows XP client.
cupsaddsmb is successful, when I check /etc/samba/drivers, it lists the
cupsdrvr.dll, cups.hlp, cupsui.dll and the ppd for my printer
>From Windows XP client, driver install also successful. (verified from
log.smbd, those four files are copied)
Did a search in winXP, those four files are found in
There's also a file called cups.GID in that directory.
Everything looks fine but when I tries to print, select the printer on
linux, the print button is greyed out.
When I tried to select printer properties, it says no printer driver, it
will start add printer wizard.
