Hello, I have a PC and my girlfriend has a laptop both running Ubuntu 12.10. We just bought an HP Deskjet 3052A. We are able to run the printer without a problem when we 'hard connect' using the provided USB cable however, we need to be able to both print using the wireless option. The printer is connected to our home wireless network.

The only option I really came across so far online was using HPLIP and using either the PC or laptop as a print server. However, this doesn't work for us as we very rarely have both machines running with our opposing work schedules and we don't want to have to keep them both running 24/7 for one of us to be able to print from our machine.

We just want to keep the printer connected to our wireless network separately and be able to print wirelessly from either machine. I greatly appreciate any/all help.
