Default Partially solved

I noticed that there's difference between the permissions CUPS itself has made for its drivers in

/usr/local/share/cups/drivers and the Win drivers I copied there. So I changed the permissions to

cups:wheel 644, and now cupsaddsmb executes ok, at last.

But there's another issue I can't still figure out: I can only add that printer on Win workstations when

I log in there with local administrator's priviledges. If not, an error message pops up:

"A policy is effect on your computer which prevents you from connecting to this print queue. Please

contact your system administrator."

I set /var/spool/samba permissions to 777 but this didn't change anything.
