Problems with samba / printing


Whereabouts do you think the following problem lies?

I can print on the system directly using "lpr", but when accessing 
the printer via its Samba share, there is only a file written to the 
printer spool directory (with the correct permissions and all), but
nothing is actually printed out.

I then have to do a "lpr $THATFILENAME" and the thing gets printed out; 
just as originally intended.

"lpd" is up and running.  The printer is a Canon BJC-4550.

I can't provide you with any further details just now, as I don't have 
access to that system now.

I'd be glad for any hints on things to look into.

Thanks in advance
The program required me to install Windows 95 or better ...
	... so I installed Linux.
