What does it mean *not* all windows-submitted jobs are necessarily rasterized? Does this imply that windows is doing something different to the data of the print job for a remote printer than it does for a locally connected printer? I would think that if a printer speaks some printing language (i.e. PS, PCL, epson-ese), window's spooled data, whether sent to a samba server or directly to the printer should be the same. Therefore, "cups options = raw" should always work for a samba served printer. Bob...
