I want to set up a printer via samba client to a Windows printserver.

I managed to do it specifying this connection string:


Is there a way to do auth through kerberos, without specifying user:pass as part of the uri?

This command:

smbclient -L printserver -k

works well (so samba itself is able to login through kerberos), but I didn't find out how to tell CUPS to apply kerberos authentication. I did not find such GUI options in KDE nor a way to specify it through the command line.

$ plasmashell --version
plasmashell 5.10.5
$ kf5-config --version
Qt: 5.9.1
KDE Frameworks: 5.38.0
kf5-config: 1.0
