Detailed Explanation Settings

The following is a discussion of the settings from Extended BSD Printing Configuration Extended BSD Printing Configuration.

The [global] Section

The [global] section is one of four special sections (along with [homes] , [printers] , and [print$] ). The [global] contains all parameters that apply to the server as a whole. It is the place for parameters that have only a global meaning. It may also contain service-level parameters that define default settings for all other sections and shares. This way you can simplify the configuration and avoid setting the same value repeatedly. (Within each individual section or share, you may, however, override these globally set share settings and specify other values).

printing = bsd

Causes Samba to use default print commands applicable for the BSD (also known as RFC 1179 style or LPR/LPD) printing system. In general, the printing parameter informs Samba about the print subsystem it should expect. Samba supports CUPS, LPD, LPRNG, SYSV, HPUX, AIX, QNX, and PLP. Each of these systems defaults to a different print command (and other queue control commands).
