View Full Version : [ubuntu] network printer

October 18th, 2010, 10:16 PM
I have been trying to install a network printer with no success. I am using a laptop with Ubuntu and my printer is in a Windows-XP. I have installed samba and added the printer, but it always comes back asking for the authentication. I do not have in my Windows-XP accounts with password, if I use one of my users registered in Windows it does not reconizes it. If I use the user/pass of ubuntu it does not work. Could somebody help me?

This is odd, did you try "COMPUTERNAME\username" in the username field? Sometimes you have to do that on windows. Also, the firewall might be blocking you. If you are running antivirus or firewall software, make sure it allows connections.
