LMDE 201109 does not have that option
All things Samba in Debian based Mint is not installed or configured correctly. Follow these steps and see if you get things working: ... 18#p315218

For printing you'll only need smbclient, libsmbclient, and python-smbc but you might as well fix everything else while your there.
Altair4, thank you. Instructions in the link works perfect. Now I see "Windows printer via SAMBA" under Network Printers. After that I can I clicked "Browse" and LMDE found me a printer that hooked up to my NAS DNS-323 print server.

I'm not sure if the OP still follow this thread or not. At least the instruction you linked solved my problem.

I am not the OP of this thread or I would mark it as [SOLVED].

Again, thanks :D
