Re: [Samba] (/usr/lib64/cups/backend/smb) stopped with status 1




OK I finally found how to print with Samba (with both "smbclient" and "smbspool") and with CUPS.

Here is how to print with "smbclient":
$ smbclient //MyHiddenPC/MyHiddenShare -WMyHiddenDomain -c 'print my-hidden-file.pdf'.

Here is how to print with "smbspool":
$ export DEVICE_URI=smb://yugiohjcj:MyHiddenPassword@MyHiddenDomain/MyHiddenPC/MyHiddenShare
$ smbspool 1 1 Xerox-WorkCentre-5325-10 1 1 my-hidden-file.pdf
DEBUG: Connected with username/password...

Here is how to print with CUPS:
The trick seems to be to use the command line to add the printer because the username and password are not correctly added to the /etc/cups/printers.conf file if the CUPS web interface is used to add the printer.
After removing all the printers through the web interface, I added the printer through the command line:
$ sudo lpadmin -p Xerox-WorkCentre-5325 -v smb://yugiohjcj:MyHiddenPassword@MyHiddenDomain/MyHiddenPC/MyHiddenShare -P Xerox-WorkCentre_7345-pxlcolor.ppd
In /etc/cups/printers.conf, I can see the username and the password.
I also configured a minimal /etc/samba/smb.conf.
I configured the printer through the web interface to be sure that:
- It is set as the default printer
- It is accepting jobs (not refusing)
- It is resumed (not paused)
- Its media size is A4
- Its duplex mode is enabled on long edge
And it works!
I am able to print through CUPS.
I guess that some steps above are not necessary but I hope it could help someone in the same case than me.

Thanks a lot.
Problem fixed.
