    Check if the print job files are still in /var/spool/samba. If they aren't, check your syslogs for any errors that cups might have given.

    Same Problem

    Hey, I setup Samba as well, and I can see the printers but when I goto print it gives me the bad drivers error. On the Windows side (winXP) I also noticed that under the printer icon it says access denied. Is there something I need to do to allow access to the WORKGROUP besides what I have writen bellow.

    [printers]
    comment = All Printers
    path = /var/spool/samba
    guest ok = yes
    printable = yes
    browseable = yes
    use client driver = Yes

    Thanks.

    you problem with access is your guest account

    i made a dummy account called guest

    and then i set guest account = guest under printer to solve the access problem

    you can use any account i forget which is the default account for guest to solve the problem at first i used the ftp account
    The computer made me do it!! Slackware and SUSE too Gig\'em WHOOOOP!!
