Install printer

Post by Priswell » Thu Jul 10, 2008 1:44

My printer is hooked up directly to an Ubuntu machine that is on the network. The Sabayon computer can't see it. I've gone through the Add A Printer dialog boxes without success. I've tried the network printer (TCP), the network printer (IPP, http) and local printer dialog boxes, and I still can't get the printer working. Help?

Is it a networked printer?

Is the printer shared on the ubuntu box?

Are you using a router? direct connect?

Is Ubuntu's CUPS properly setup for sharing on your network? or are you using a samba share for some reason? Have you tried adding the printer using the cups web admin page?
