Prelude: I am a Linux newbie, still groping in the dark.
I am running Mandriva 2009 KDE4.
At home I have a network with:
Ubuntu (Intrepid Ibex) GNOME.
The XP and Ubuntu are set up properly, sharing files and a printer on XP.
Mandriva is not.
Using SMB4K I was able to see the network, but only the XP. I cannot see Ubuntu from Mandriva. On the other hand, Ubuntu CAN see Mandriva.
From Mandriva I can only mount file folders from the XP, I cannot mount the printer.
So, how can I set it up so Mandriva can see Ubuntu too?
How do I mount a printer on the XP computer to Mandriva?
I presume they have the same work group name assigned
You need to tell smb4k the same (default is mandriva i believe)
For the printer open MCC (configure your computer)
Hardware>set up printers. It will probably need to install cups to carry on if its not installed.
