Description David Woodhouse 2002-05-22 10:05:14 UTC
CUPS cannot print to SMB printers until you manually make a symlink from
/usr/lib/cups/backend/smb to /usr/bin/smbspool.

If smbspool is there for the sole purpose of being a CUPS backend, then perhaps
it should be split into a separate binary package and put in /usr/lib/cups/backend?

Otherwise, perhaps we need to play with triggers to make the symlink or
something similar.

Sounds like a cups issue.

Comment 2 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-05-22 16:30:25 UTC
The cups spec file has: 
%triggerin -- samba-clients 
ln -sf ../../../bin/smbspool %{_libdir}/cups/backend/smb || : 
exit 0 
%triggerun -- samba-clients 
[ $2 = 0 ] || exit 0 
rm -f %{_libdir}/cups/backend/smb 
Did you install samba-clients? 

Comment 3 David Woodhouse 2002-05-22 17:17:45 UTC
samba-client is installed.
samba-clients is not.

If that was just a typo... yes, samba-client was installed before the upgrade to
7.3, cups was installed later.

Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2002-09-26 07:22:04 UTC
This has been fixed since cups-1.1.15-1.
