There seems to be a lot questions about connecting to Windows computers and I hope I'm not being redundant here, but I haven't seen a solution to my problem. My printer is connected to a computer running Windows 7 and I'd like to be able to print from my computer running Ubuntu through the Windows 7 computer. I've loaded Samba and it's finding the printer, but I'm getting hung up when I'm asked for a Workgroup password. To the best of my knowledge, there is no 'Workgroup' password. I've verified that the Windows computer is part of the workgroup WORKGROUP. Thanks for any input. Cheers!
