Samba and Cups Printer Issue.
I have Samba and a cups printer that is attached locally. It use to be accessable over the network for my Win clients but it stopped working a couple of days ago. I have reviewed the samba log files and have dicovered this error message, "printing/pcap.c:pcap_printer_fn(372). Unable to open printcap file cups for read!" Does any one have any ideas? I now my printcap file for cups is there(/etc/printcap) My relavent entrees in the smb.conf are:

load printers = yes
printing = cups
printcap name = cups

browseable = no
comment = All Printers
printable = yes
path = /var/spool/samba
public = yes
guest ok = yes
writable = no
printer admin = root, administrator

I switched "printcap name = cups" to "printcap name = /etc/printcap," and it works fine. Just thought it may help someone one else out there.
