I am using Ubuntu 8.10 Desktop as a file and print server on my network. The printer is shared through Samba.

When I print from another station and I want to print 2 or more copies of one page only one copy gets printed.

This is becuase in Ubuntu printer settings under "printer/preferences/Job options" there is a checkbox that says "copies = 1" so it always will just print 1 copy. If I change the number to 2 or 3 then I will always get that many copies.

But I want the remote station to control the number of copies.

How can I acomplish this?

Any help is apreciated.
