    Printer sharing

    Ubuntu 13.04

    I find no option to share a printer over local home network. Hp-lip and Samba are installed. No option in System Settings under printers either. I have been able to do it in prior versions.

    Re: Printer sharing

    Printer sharing is usually turned on by default. Try opening http://localhost:631/printers This this page is not found, then perhaps cupsd is not running. You might need an update to fix a bug which interferes with cupsd from starting.

    I am using xubuntu 13.04, it was easy to find
    Menu-> settings manager -> printers -> Settings (in the server menu)
    you can do it from here also
    http://localhost:631/admin

    I assume you checked "Server" Settings on the page opened from System "Printer'. I don't run 13.04 so may be in another location.

    I went into the admin server settings and set printer for sharing the other day but since then my modem failed and I have been distracted from following up with it. New modem installed by cable company today.
