Work around some bugs with managed printers
Authored by: bdog on Oct 25, '06 07:26:41PM

Yea, exactly the reason why I have an AppleScript. I think I tried $1, and since the log in/out scripts run as root, it touches root's home folder.

1. You wont lose specific settings on the printers, since managed printers sets this for the users.

2. No, you can point clients to the print server. Setup the queues on the server. Then, sit at a client and add the queues by hand. Then, manage these printer configs you just setup on a client. And speaking of the print server, it doesn't square the number of copies anymore, yay!

3. Default printers finally work, I think. It seems to be remembering the last used printer, or the default set in the OD.

4. Yes, I confirm local printers are working on tiger.

5. We manually config LDAP, so can't verify that issue. Oh, and mobile accounts have many many issues of their own!
