CUPS Print Server

I have installed a printer using CUPS and set up the share in Samba. However, when I browse to the "shared printers" I see nothing and the log reports this:
Sep 13 01:41:29 China smbd[2695]: [2005/09/13 01:41:29, 0] smbd/service.c:make_connection(800)
Sep 13 01:41:29 China smbd[2695]:   dell8300 ( couldn't find service ::{2227a280-3aea-1069-a2de-08002b30309d}
I restarted the server and nothing changes. Any suggestions?

Directly via USB. I can send a test print with no problems.

I tried this yesterday too.

Under the printers section of my smb.conf, I put in the following lines:


comment = All Printers
path = /var/spool/samba
browseable = yes


It worked. If you change the value of the last line to "no", you won't be able to see the printer share. Try it out.
