I am running Mint 8, I have it installed on two computers on a LAN. Also installed on the LAN is a HP 3800dn color laser jet printer. It appears as 192.168.1.103
I can access it using my browser (Netscape) by entering the address into the browser. This allows me to print, but ONLY PDF files.
I can also connect the printer through the USB port and using HPLIP am able to have full functionality of the printer.
BUT I dont know how to access the printer when it is connected to the LAN....except as noted above, which has the limited functionality of being only able to print PDF files.
I have looked among the "Network" menu on the Control Center but do not know if any of those are the way in. If they are I dont know how to use them. I have also looked in the "Printer" menu on the Control Center, but again if that is the way in, I dont know how to use the software.
I am sure this is an easy thing to do...BUT...I just dont know the method to set the printer up to be accessed directly by the computer "print" function except on the USB port BUT I need it to be accessible from the other computer that is also on the LAN.
