Networked printing in Mint from XP box

Postby Zircoff » Wed Jul 30, 2008 4:46 pm

Hi there

Quick question if I may - I have a LaserJet 1018 connected to my Mint box and want to print to it from my XP machine. Is it necessary to use Samba to do this? I have CUPS set to share connected printers and to allow printing via the internet, but Windows wont connect to the printer. I've not made any changes to Samba nd suspect this is my problem. Anyone help me out?

Thanks

emmpee

Thanks for looking folks, but I figured it out somehow - wish I could tell you how, then I would know for next time! :D
