HELP: sharing printer probs

Postby radioman on Sun Jul 13, 2008 9:55 am

Hi
I have got a Epson R300 printer installed in linuxmint 5, and seems to be working ok
I have a winXP pc on the network (MSHOME) and can see both ways, although the win pc
can not get to the net :o . I need to be able to share the printer on the linux box with the win pc
but not to sure what i have to do to get it working.

Thanks in advance

Strange that the XP machine can bee seen by the LM box but it cant access the 'net. I would fix that first.
Anyways, sounds like a Samba issue. Google samba and you will find info on how to share the printer.
good luck
