Depending on the SAMBA configuration, you may need to provide a password to export the printers. This program requires the Adobe PostScript printer driver files described below. .LP The \fI-H\fR option specifies the SAMBA server which defaults to the CUPS server. .LP The \fI-U\fR option specifies the SAMBA print admin username which defaults to your current username. .LP The \fI-a\fR option exports all known printers. Otherwise only the named printers are exported. .LP The \fI-h\fR option specifies a different CUPS server to use. .LP The \fI-v\fR option specifies that verbose information should be shown and is useful for debugging SAMBA configuration problems. .SH SAMBA CONFIGURATION \fIcupsaddsmb\fR uses the new RPC-based printing support in SAMBA 2.2.x to provide printer drivers and PPD files to Windows client machines. In order to use this functionality, you must first configure SAMBA (via the smb.conf file) to support printing through CUPS and provide a printer driver download share, as follows: .nf [global] load printers = yes printing = cups printcap name = cups [printers] comment = All Printers path = /var/spool/samba browseable = no public = yes guest ok = yes writable = no printable = yes printer admin = root [print$] comment = Printer Drivers path = /etc/samba/drivers browseable = yes guest ok = no read only = yes write list = root .fi .LP This configuration assumes a FHS-compliant installation of SAMBA; adjust the [printers] and [print$] share paths accordingly on your system as needed. .SH ADOBE POSTSCRIPT DRIVERS FOR WINDOWS \fIcupsaddsmb\fR uses the Adobe PostScript printer drivers for Windows, which are available for download from the Adobe web site (http://www.adobe.com). Once you have extracted the driver files, create a "drivers" directory in the CUPS data directory (usually /usr/share/cups) and copy the Adobe files using UPPERCASE filenames, as follows: .nf ADFONTS.MFM ADOBEPS4.DRV ADOBEPS4.HLP ADOBEPS5.DLL ADOBEPSU.DLL ADOBEPSU.HLP DEFPRTR2.PPD ICONLIB.DLL PSMON.DLL .fi .SH SEE ALSO CUPS Software Administrators Manual, http://localhost:631/documentation.html .SH COPYRIGHT Copyright 1993-2002 by Easy Software Products, All Rights Reserved. .\" .\" End of "$Id: cupsaddsmb.man,v 184.108.40.206 2002/04/08 07:21:18 jlovell Exp $". .\"
