    Re: Networking my Ubuntu desktop, Mac Laptop, printer, and external HD

    Still not working...

    For the Mac, it does not ask for a password. In the Finder, I click on Network, then lucas-desktop, then it says Connection Failed. There is a Connect As button, but pressing it only gives a message to check if the computer is connected.

    For the printer, I followed your instructions. I assumed you did not mean for me to put the [i] and [/code] in the name. So the name is just lucas-desktop:631. I used the name of the printer based on what the desktop said which was "PSC-1500-series." After adding the printer and printing, the printer automatically pauses. When I unpause it, it just pauses again. If I put the print job on hold, then I can unpause the printer, but when I resume the print job, the printer immediately pauses again. Further, on the desktop, the printer queue doesn't show anything.

    I alternatively tried including the [i] and [/code] in the name, using "PSC-1500" as the name, and a thread suggesting using another protocol besides IPP. None of these things helped. I also tried alternatively clicking the Share Printer button because it was not be default checked. Didn't work either way.

    Any other suggestions?
