We all know there are workarounds for this and what surprises me more s that after 8 months NO FIX! I just took my install of ubuntu 12.04 to the latest samba packages from Raring and the problem is still there . I was already running CUPS 1.61. What I did notice is something I did not see before when I ran

cupsaddsmb -H localhost -U root -h localhost -a -v

It returned an error about an invalid printer .

So then I run
rpcclient -U root localhost -c enumdrivers
rpcclient -U root localhost -c enumprinters

And only one driver and two printers (one is PDF) . The PDF printer nor driver are anywhere t be fund but the driver for the PDF printer was made available to windows! What gets even weirder is that I cn print to the PDF printer via Samba and a postscript driver! Considering that samba does not even see it as installed thats odd

Is this a samba bug or cups bug?
