Argh... my mistake. Name association... everything I associate with
Leonard seems to samba related :-) My apologies - just replace
samba.conf with /etc/cupsys.conf and compare w/meld. But I see that
you've flushed & reinstalled cupsys so I guess it's a moot issue.

Sure, I'll be happy to help if I can, drop me a note. Re USB printer, my
printer is a Canon MP750 multi-function USB printer and it works just
fine connected locally, and from my other Ubuntu machines using:

The only settings that I have in the Printer Server settings are:
- Share published printers connected to this system
[note: Allow printing from the internet is *not* checked]
- Allow remote administration
