Hi! Since I did a fresh install from Mint 7 RC to Mint 7, I am having trouble adding a printer.
I choose Printing from the Mint Menu and click New. There used to be a Windows Printer via Samba option when I was using the RC, but it is not there in this fresh Mint 7 install. How can I get the option back? It was incredibly simple to install the printer that way. I have now tried a few different methods, but can't get them to work.
I am able to connect to the shared files on the target XP machine just fine, and the printer is shared.
Any ideas why that option is missing?
