Description jburnes 1999-12-15 21:56:01 UTC
The smbprint script fails when attempting to print to Windows/SMB
connected LAN printers because of a typo in the 'smbprint' script.

The very last line of the script invokes 'smbclient'.  One of the
arguments in smbclient is the workgroup.  The variable the contains
the workgroup command '-W' is called $workgroupcmd.  When invoking
smbclient 'workgroupcmd' is misspelled as 'wokrgroupcmd', thus any
print server that requires this will break.

Fix is simply to correct the typo.  This took a while to track down.

Do I get a free copy of redhat 6.1 boxed edition ;-)
