CUPS - automatically adding driver to windows PC's


hi all,

i have made a CUPS server and i have installed papercut NG on it aswell

it works great im really happy as the end users need to download the papercut client via the smb share (\\CUPS\client), once they download that they then add the printer via -

http://CUPS:631/printers/printer_name

but then it asks the end user for the driver to install, is there a way to automatically dish it out so the end user does nothing as they arnt tech savy shall we say

cheers,

rob

Have not played with automatic windows drivers in a long time.

Used this -

https://www.cups.org/doc/man-cupsaddsmb.html

Once copied drivers to folder you have to run this command -

cupssmbadd -v -a

Using the v option you can see if success or errors and this will help you resolve problem
