Does anyone have any idea what I'm doing wrong?
Saw this one just the other day. Samba did not automatically create
the spool directory. Then when I created it manually it still
wouldn't write to it, so I made it 777 and it started to work. Weird.
First off, the default spool directory is: /usr/spool/samba
That is wrong, of course, but there it is.
Second, no indication who should own it.

I found the error in /var/log/messages:

Mar 30 08:33:08 eragon smbd[27923]: '/usr/spool/samba' does not exist or permission denied when connecting to [lp] Error was No such file or directory
Good Luck!

Forgot to add:

# ln -s /var/spool /usr/spool

will correct the problem. But the package maintainer probably needs to correct it in the next update.
