View Full Version : [ubuntu] Printing on Ubuntu 8.04 LTS sharing with Windows XP

May 23rd, 2008, 05:03 PM
Hello. I have a Ubuntu 8.04 LTS (desktop) hooked up with my HP LaserJet P1006 at home. On Windows XP, I have printer sharing enabled, meaning that other Windows users can print wirelessly. However, when I have Ubuntu running, other Windows users are unable to print. What solutions are out there to solve this problem? Thanks.

Its for the previous release but I suspect it should also work for 8.04.
