View Full Version : [ubuntu] Connecting to a printer on Windows workgroup

September 3rd, 2010, 05:19 AM
Hello all,
I hope someone can assist me with. About a year ago I installed Ubuntu 64 bit on a friend's computer who knows nothing about computers. He wanted to avoid viruses and I suggested Ubuntu. He likes it.
Now, his wife has a Windows laptop (I think has Vista on). She would like to connect to a printer connected to his Ubuntu.
I have some knowledge to get me through the day with Ubuntu, and I was able to get her computer to find the printer (after configuring few things on the Ubuntu machine, like Samba). Connection is a wireless one. I can get the process done all the way through hitting the 'print' button on the Windows machine with no errors, but no job is added to the print queue on the Ubuntu machine. I researched this all around and the solutions I found did not work for me.
I really don't want him back on Windows - any assistance is greatly welcome.
