Samba printing to CUPS printer

All printjobs sent from my Windows to my CUPS printer on Mandrake 8.1 seem to disappear.

I can print from within my Linux machine to the CUPS printer, but when I'm trying the Windows test page it disappears.

I can connect to the printer from Window, I can send a print job, the job appears on the Windows spooler and is sent further to the CUPS spooler without giving any error. But nothing happens.

I've removed the -r in the cups-lpr command (smb.conf), and the job appears in /var/spool/samba. When I then execute cups-lpr manual, nothing.

Please help.

Many thanks,

Kris Jacobs

Solved problem myself.

Got an Epson Stylus Color 600. Installed wrong printerdriver under Linux. Changed to the recommended driver and now it works.
