Reccomendations? (to access usb winprinter through guest os)
I have a Lexmark 3-in1 printer (x3350) that so far is not playing nice with linux or my wife's macbook.
I would like to, if possible, use an xp professional guest vm to access the usb printer, then share it using samba to our lappies.
I installed qemulator/qemu from synaptic and checked the usb checkbox on the hardware tab, but xp doesn't get my flash drive or the printer.
I have used vmware before but it seemed a little intrusive/hard to pare out compared to, say, qemu.
Given the above, can anyone reccomend a good strategy here?
(Also supposedly I need to include an arg in the qemu command to add a usb device with its bus address.
dmesg gives me:
[33421.139476] hiddev96: USB HID v1.00 Device [Lexmark 3300 Series] on usb-0000:00:1f.2-2
but I'm not sure exactly which part I need to pass to qemu.)
