You didn't say if anything is printing and the driver is not working, or if
you just can't get anything to print at all, good or bad. So, assuming you
can't get anything to print, here's my thought:

SMB printers don't need to be 'mounted' to be printed to. The most common
error is to not include the SMB-style device path in the settings. They should
look like:

//MEhost/prtqueue
