    Samba - PDF Creation

    Hi all,

    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.
