Zyxel Samba Replacement - Print Server

I had to update samba on my nas to be able to use it with windows 10 so, I've installed MetaRepository and Entware-ng on my NSA310.
The samba update went well it is working again, but I've noticed that the Print Server is not working anymore.
Anyone managed to get print server working on the entware-ng samba replacement?
Is the problem in the CUPS or Samba itself? Any chances to get it fixed?
Any suggestions will be highly appreciated.

    I'm afraid this is out of my knowledge zone. I *think* Samba talks to CUPS using a unix socket. I can imagine the old CUPS and the new Samba are not compatible on this level. So you can try to install Entware-ng CUPS and kill the firmware one. I have no idea how to configure that, but for low level configuration the Arch Linux wiki is often a great help.

    From what I can see is that the firmware cups version is 1.1.23, the Entware-ng cups version is 2.2.6, but when I'm trying to install entware-ng cups I'm getting:
    ~ # opkg install cups
    Package cups (2.2.6-1) installed in root is up to date.

    on the other hand cups config showing v1.1.23:
    # cups-config --version
    1.1.23

    anyone tried the Cups from entware-ng at all?

    'which cups-config' will tell you which binary is invoked. I suppose it's the firmware one. Both the firmware and Entware-ng cups are in the PATH, if you want a particular one, you have to specify the full path.
    Do you have a cups startscript in /opt/etc/init.d/?

    I don't know. But Entware-ng is based on the OpenWrt packages, and in the OpenWrt forum you can read people are using cups.
