I must confess that it was long ago I tried to set up printing from Windows
clients with samba. It worked by copying the to-be-printed files to /tmp on
unix and issuing a lpr command. I then was puzzled about the many big files
in /tmp with strange names until I got the idea to add a "-r" switch to the
lpr command to remove files after printing. It worked from then on and I
never tried to setup anything and only remembered that the "-r" switch was
vital for operation with samba.
