adding smb printer under cups


I need to add a smb printer using cups on my linux system. But in the "Device" menu (the cups admin interface), it doesn't show anything about SMB. How do I add a smb printer under cups?

you need to install smbclient to able this option, if you are using debian run:

# apt-get install smbclient

after installing return to cupsadmin page and you'll proceed with this option available.
