View Full Version : [ubuntu] Network printing : All PC's but one....

April 7th, 2009, 01:22 AM
We're running Ubuntu 8.10 on all the PC's in the house which encompass a Dell quad, (2) Thankpad R51's, and a (2) Vaio NGR120's.

All the PC's can see the HP F4200 printer hooked up to the Dell except MY R51 Thinkpad. My daughters R51 - no problem. Saw it, connected to it, and printed.

I've scoured the net trying to figure out why my particular laptop can't see the printer when all the others can right from install.

There's nothing different about mine. It's configured the same as my daughters.

Any ideas I can try?

Are all of them wired or wireless? Can the thinkpad ping the computer with the printer?
