Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: likewise-open

I'm run Ubuntu 8.04 and add it to windows domain using likewise-open.
Home of domain users in this case placed in /home/<Domain_Name>/<user_name>

in /var/log/cups/cups-pdf_log:
[ERROR] failed to create directory (/home/<Domain_Name>/<user_name>/PDF)
[ERROR] failed to create user output directory (/home/<Domain_Name>/<user_name>/PDF)

solution found in https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/cups-pdf/+bug/212280 and solution was to add /home/<Domain_Name>/<user_name> to   @{HOMEDIRS} in /etc/apparmor.d/tunables/home
like this:
 @{HOMEDIRS}=/home/ /home/<Domain_Name>/

Wil be perfect, if likewise-open will edit this variable when add
computer to domain.
