I'm sorry; I haven't worked with these drivers in over a year now. I don't even know what version they're up to; this HOWTO may very well be obsolete.

Make sure your 'write list' contains a valid user such as 'root'.

Code:

[print$]
comment = Printer Drivers
path = /etc/samba/drivers
guest ok = no

Are you using Gentoo? And emerge to install Samba?
If so it might behoove you to use the paths that are already properly setup by the ebuild. Look at the example smb.conf that is provided, zoom in on the print$ share and you may begin to see the problem.

Can you copy that here, I believe I deleted mine. Or at least; it's not in /etc/samba not /usr/share/doc/samba-3.0.24-r3

It's smb.conf.example in /etc/samba/ - just remerge samba or untar the corresponding gentoo package.

Okay; here's the relevant section in the example conf:

Code:
[print$]
   path = /var/lib/samba/printers
   browseable = yes
   read only = yes
   write list = @adm root
   guest ok = yes


And here's mine now:
Code:
[print$]
        comment = Printer drivers
        path = /var/lib/samba/printers
        guest ok = yes
        browseable = yes
        read only = yes
        write list = @adm root


SO!

Here's the now-current error:
Code:

Hint:
Code:
Server not using user level security and no password supplied.

Did you you have some important reason to change the default security mode?
Really, if you want to use Samba you should RTFM! Especially before deciding to change defaults!

Because I was trying to set up a general-access fileshare. I do on occasion have people over to my apartment with their computers, and rather than have to train them in the use of usernames and passwords and set up usernames for everyone, I just set the security to share. Which I was under the impression that that was an acceptable method of setting up a share. Or else why would it be in SAMBA?

Also; the lack of of a big "ERROR" or similar next to the "Server not using user level security and no password supplied." meant to *me* that it was a warning or status message of some kind, that wasn't relevant to the operation at hand. Especially since it asks me for the password to the root samba user every time I run the command.

If you read the docs you will find the answer to that question. Basically you can't do domain PDC stuff with share level security - you're acting like an old Win95 box (don't expect auto-driver download, etc.). It's easy enough to set up guest shares without resorting to "security = share" which is generally frowned upon (a reading of 'man smb.conf' should convince you of this).
The main problem with Samba is not 'with Samba', it's that many users don't understand Windows networking which Samba emulates. The reality is, that a working knowledge of Windows networking is very useful to implenting Samba without a lot of new study. If you don't have that background, read the docs and start with the defaults.

I had this problem too. After some experimentation I discovered that is because the files that cupsaddsmb is looking for are case sensitive.

This is a really old thread, but it is what came up in Google when I searched for help.

Just thought I'd post the problem I ran in to and my solution.

I had set up the printers, got it shared with a windows machine, and had tried printing many jobs. All would fail and I would find this in my cups log:

Code:
PID 16862 (/usr/libexec/cups/filter/pstoraster) crashed on signal 11!


A long story short, I finally tried messing with the printer options under the windows machine I was trying to print from. It was trying to print at 5760x1440 dpi! Now I knew that this crappy printer wouldn't handle that, so I changed it to something more reasonable -- 720 dpi. Worked like a charm.

To access the printer options, browse to the printer, view its properties, select the General tab, click "Printing Preferences...", Select the "Paper/Quality" tab, click "Advanced..." and you'll find what appear to be the same options found under the cups web interface.

Hope that helps some people!
