Overhauling CUPS: Pushing Windows Printer Drivers - page 5
The Easy Way: Buy The Right Printer
Download and unpack the CUPS Windows drivers, currently
cups-windows-6.0-source.tar.gz. Enter the source directory and run this command:
# make install Creating directory /usr/share/cups/drivers... Installing cups6.inf... Installing cups6.ini... Installing cupsps6.dll... Installing cupsui6.dll...
Now you need either the Postscript drivers copied from a Windows PC, or get the Adobe drivers,
winsteng.exe. They're all the same; get the Adobe drivers if you can't find them on your Windows PC.
To use the Adobe drivers, download and install them on a Windows system. You don't need a printer, you just want to extract the files. On Windows 2000/XP, look for the windowssystem32spooldriversw32x86 directory. On Windows 9x/ME look for the WIN40 directory. Copy the contents of these directories into
/usr/share/cups/drivers directory on the Samba/CUPS server. This is how it looks for Windows 2000/XP:
cups6.ini cupsps6.dll cupsui6.dll ps5ui.dll pscript5.dll pscript.hlp pscript.ntf
Add these for Windows 9x/ME:
adfonts.mfm adobeps4.drv adobeps4.hlp iconlib.dll psmon.dll
Be to sure to convert all filenames to lowercase. If you don't
cupsaddsmb won't work.
