Ubuntu 12.04 printer share keeps asking for password and I can't authenticate from any machine. Why?? We've installed it in two machine (to act as printer servers) and we get the same problem.
It doesn't matter what we do, change or install. We can't figure out why the printer share asks for password even using all of the users that are registered in the server.
What is wrong with Precise? I want it to work without a password, but it is not even working WITH one!
I gave up! The samba version that comes with Precise is insufferable! I tried various settings that didn't work. I should've used Mint from the beginning.
[Edit] My printers config. Remembering that samba is 3.6.3 in ubuntu 12.04
