In an Active Directory environment the most intuitive way for users to add printers is by using the included default printer browser, and to make the process as smooth as possible single-sign on is the way to go. This also makes it easier to manage the printers on your network and use print monitoring software (it works great with PaperCut). The launch daemon watches the /etc/cups/printers.conf file for changes, and once a printer is added the script will enable all local SMB printers for Kerberos authentication. The installer package is available for download at the bottom of the post, and constructive feedback is greatly appreciated! More
