Description klmitch 1999-04-30 20:50:26 UTC
On the last line of /usr/lib/rhs/rhs-printfilters/smbprint,
the variable "$workgroupcmd" is misspelled "$wokrgroupcmd",
rendering smb printing non-functional.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-05-03 15:09:59 UTC
fixed in rhs-printfilters-1.52-1, available in next rawhide.

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 1999-08-31 17:41:59 UTC
*** Bug 4808 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

The last line ikn /usr/lib/rhs/rhs-printfilters/smbprint
instead of

This results in smbclient being run with an invalid command
line if a workgroup is specified in printtool, resulting in
no data being spooled.
Edit file as detailed above to fix problem.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 1999-09-27 18:22:59 UTC
*** Bug 5398 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

last line of /usr/lib/rhs/rhs-printfilters contains a typo.

the expression    $wokrgroupcmd   evaluates to null, should
read :            $workgroupcmd

This caused my smb print jobs to fail silently; smbclient
was denied access, and lpd saw the file dumped to /dev/null
successfully and so reported normal operation.  fixing the
typo makes everything wokr fine.  Am I the first person to
discover this ?
