Due to a bug, one recent CUPS release puts the cups.hlp driver file into/usr/share/drivers/ instead of /usr/share/cups/drivers/. To work around this, copy/move the file (after running the ./cups-samba.install script) manually to the correct place.

This new CUPS PostScript driver is currently binary only, but free of charge. No complete source code is provided (yet). The reason is that it has been developed with the help of the Microsoft DDK and compiled with Microsoft Visual Studio 6. Driver developers are not allowed to distribute the whole of the source code as free software. However, CUPS developers released the “diff” in source code under the GPL, so anybody with a license for Visual Studio and a DDK will be able to compile for himself or herself.
