    windows printer


    (while I have been able to print to this printer before it was with a different distro)

    after soooo many failed attempts to even see my workgroup I think I'm going to start with noob understanding and questions.

    how do I see my workgroup called: workgroup ? (using smb I'm guessing)

    in YaST goto:

    Network Deices -> Network Card

    then click "change" to change the config of your network card

    Choose the network card (if like my server u have more than 1) and click "Edit"

    then click "Host Name and Name Server"

    in the "Domain Name" field, put "workgroup"

    i know it says domain name, but this is only if ur on a domain, if not, it'll revery tobeing the workgroup

    Just after u log in, it might tell you the computername and workgroup.

    something like:

    comutername.workgroup
