Samba Printer Sharing on Raspian

Edit Samba configuration file:

sudo nano /etc/samba/smb.conf

Remove “;”

# CUPS printing. See also the cupsaddsmb(8) manpage in the
# cupsys-client package.
; printing = cups
; printcap name = cups

so it looks like:

# CUPS printing. See also the cupsaddsmb(8) manpage in the
# cupsys-client package.
 printing = cups
 printcap name = cups

Allow gests:

[printers]
 comment = All Printers
 browseable = no
 path = /var/spool/samba
 printable = yes
 guest ok = no
 read only = yes
 create mask = 0700
[printers]
 comment = All Printers
 browseable = no
 path = /var/spool/samba
 printable = yes
 guest ok = yes
 read only = yes
 create mask = 0700

Finally restart samba:

sudo service samba restart
