Samba - PDF Creation
Im new here and slightly to Linux so please bear with me
Ive been attempting to setup a samba server that my users can send files to in order to create pdf files.
Ive been following this guide:
So far ive got the setup done, the script is in place, my xp client can connect to the printer but when I send any files nothing seems to happen
So what I would like to know is; have any of you managed to get this done succesfully? if so any tips?
Im running on Redhat 9 and can send anyone my smb.conf if they could help out id be grateful.
Thanks in advance

I believe the reason nothing is happening is because you need to run the script after everytime you 'send' a file to that directory. If you don't want the hassle of running the script after everytime something has been placed in that directory, then you could a) set up a cron job to run the specified script at scheduled intervals, or b) setup another script that runs as a daemon process to monitor the directory for new files, and then have it run the pdf script.
