Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 63
SMB print client configuration scripts not good enough
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:08:33 EDT
1) Workgroups sometimes need to be specified for smbclient
to successfully login. The printtool/smbprint script do not
support workgroupsat all (need to add a workgroup field,
and a workgroup variable translating into -W "$workgroup"
option to smbclient).
2) smbclient usernames can have spaces in them.
printtool just saves
username=user name with spaces
Should be something like this
username='user name with spaces'
with proper escapes for any quotes, of course.
But the smbprint script would not process this
correctly, as usrcmd="-U $username" would translate
into smbclient ... -U user name with spaces ... .
Need to redo the script with smarter processing.
Something like this:
if [ "$username" != "" ]; then
smbclient ... $usercmd_opt "$username" ...
and don't forget to add the option for workgroup!
works fine otherwise... thanks
will be added in next printtool release
I believe this has been fixed in the latest
