View Full Version : [ubuntu] Can't find HP LaserJet 3015 on network, connected to a Win 7 PC thru USB

I just installed Ubuntu 10.04, 32 bit, yesterday on my Dell Latitude 6500E and I am new to Linux. I can't find my HP LaserJet 3015 on my home network, even though it is connected to a new Windows 7, 64 bit PC thru USB. The other Windows PCs find it fine, and all 4 PCs can see each other on the network. So, I installed the HP software (http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/install/install/index.html) and that went smoothly, but the printer is still invisible. I also added Samba and that works great like everything else. I plugged the printer in directly to my Ubuntu laptop's USB port and it printed instantly. Now, if I could just print to the LaserJet on the network. Anybody got this one figured out? Does Wine provide a way around this? Thanks.

I reinstalled Ubuntu, then I connected the printer to a Windows XP machine through USB. I was then able to see it right away with Samba and it printed the first time with no hassle. So the problem is with Windows 7.
