It should be something like:

printer = <name of printer as defined in /etc/printcap>

i.e.

printer = lp0

Also check, via man 5 smb.conf and confirm that the "print command",
"lpq command" and "lprm command" will work on your system.

Also, I'm not sure but I think "writable =" must be yes for things to work.
