Problems with Samba2.2.3a (automatic driver installation)

Hello,

I have a small problem with Samba 2.2.3a. The automatic driver
installation can not be realisated. All entries loud various
guidances (also an article of the IX) exists, but it does not function. Can me someone say, what entries must exist? On which place must I copy the driver files? What must I do with the driver files?

Thanks

Hello,

My /etc/samba/smb.conf contains :

printer driver location = /etc/sambaprinters

In /etc/sambaprinters I have the following files :

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 60447 avr 17 2000 hpf930a0.dat

I have a /etc/printers.def that contains :

HP DeskJet 930C Series:HPFNTUM0.DLL:HPFPCLE0.DLL:HPFHLPB0.HLP::RAW:HPFPCLE0.DLL,HPFNTUM0.DLL,HPFUINT0.DLL,HPFHLPB0.HLP

To create that file, I used a program shipped with Samba distribution :

/usr/bin/make_printerdef

However, I don't remember how it works. I did it several months ago, just for testing.

You should have a look at the following documents (in /usr/share/doc/samba...) :

* Samba-HOWTO-Collection
* printer_driver2.htm

Good luck.
