NAME

       cupsaddsmb - export printers to samba for windows clients

SYNOPSIS

       cupsaddsmb  [ -H samba-server ] [ -U samba-user[%samba-password] ] [ -h
       cups-server[:port] ] [ -v ] -a
       cupsaddsmb [ -H samba-server ] [ -U samba-user[%samba-password] ] [  -h
       cups-server[:port] ] [ -v ] printer [ ...  printer ]

DESCRIPTION

       The  cupsaddsmb program exports printers to the SAMBA software (version
       2.2.0 or higher) for use with Windows clients.  Depending on the  SAMBA
       configuration,  you  may  need  to  provide  a  password  to export the
       printers.  This program  requires  the  Windows  printer  driver  files
       described below.

   SAMBA CONFIGURATION
       cupsaddsmb  uses  the  RPC-based  printing  support in SAMBA to provide
       printer drivers and PPD files to Windows client machines.  In order  to
       use  this functionality, you must first configure the SAMBA smb.conf(5)
       file to support printing through CUPS  and  provide  a  printer  driver
       download share, as follows:

           [global]
            load printers = yes
            printing = cups
            printcap name = cups

           [printers]
            comment = All Printers
            path = /var/spool/samba
            browseable = no
            public = yes
            guest ok = yes
            writable = no
            printable = yes

           [print$]
            comment = Printer Drivers
            path = /etc/samba/drivers
            browseable = yes
            guest ok = no
            read only = yes
            write list = root

       This  configuration  assumes  a  FHS-compliant  installation  of SAMBA;
       adjust the [printers] and [print$]  share  paths  accordingly  on  your
       system as needed.

   MICROSOFT POSTSCRIPT DRIVERS FOR WINDOWS
       The base driver for Windows 2000 and higher is the Microsoft PostScript
       driver, which is available on any system running Windows 2000 or higher
       in   the  %WINDIR%\SYSTEM32\SPOOL\DRIVERS\W32X86\3  folder  for  32-bit
       drivers and  %WINDIR%\SYSTEM32\SPOOL\DRIVERS\X64\3  folder  for  64-bit
       drivers.

       Copy  the  32-bit  drivers to the /usr/share/cups/drivers directory and
       the 64-bit drivers to the /usr/share/cups/drivers/x64 directory exactly
       as named below:

           ps5ui.dll
           pscript.hlp
           pscript.ntf
           pscript5.dll

       Note:  Unlike Windows, case is significant - make sure that you use the
       lowercase filenames shown above,  otherwise  cupsaddsmb  will  fail  to
       export the drivers.

OPTIONS

       cupsaddsmb supports the following options:

       -H samba-server
            Specifies the SAMBA server which defaults to the CUPS server.

       -U samba-user[%samba-password]
            Specifies  the  SAMBA  print admin username which defaults to your
            current  username.   If  the  username  contains  a  percent   (%)
            character,  then  the text following the percent is treated as the
            SAMBA password to use.

       -a   Exports all known printers.  Otherwise only the named printers are
            exported.

       -h cups-server[:port]
            Specifies a different CUPS server to use.

       -v   Specifies  that  verbose  information  should  be  shown.  This is
            useful for debugging SAMBA configuration problems.
