View Full Version : [ubuntu] Network Printing - I just can't seem to figure it out.

March 3rd, 2009, 05:43 AM
My setup is this... I have an XP Pro laptop that I want to print from. The printer in question is an Epson Stylus CX4800. The printer is connected to my desktop which runs Intrepid 8.10 64 bit.

I have a samba network share set up. I put the printer driver for Windows computers in a public network folder.

The idea is to do this...

Users go to start - run - \\mycomputername

Then they right click the printer, hit connect. When it asks for driver, put in the UNC to the driver in the public share.

Presto. Done.

But the XP Pro laptop yields "Access Denied" on the printer and I have no idea why. I even followed Ubuntu's guide on this exact issue.

Can anybody help?
