I use Ubuntu 7.04 on one laptop and Ubuntu 8.10 on another laptop.
I have a SAMSUNG CLP-300 series and a CANON 4150 4-in-1 attached to a Windows based desktop which is on my wireless network. Since these printers don't appear as choices in the Ubuntu "add a printer" database, how can I print wirelessly to both above printers from my Ubuntu based laptops?

Thanks Kindly gentlemen and wizards!

You need to configure the printers to be shared in Windows and configure CUPS (and maybe SAMBA??) on the Ubuntu Machines.
