    I'm not sure what you have tried thus far so forgive me if I'm pointing out the obvious. Can you see the printer share from your linux machine at all? have you looked through the samba config file (/etc/samba/smb.conf) to see if there are any settings commented out or set incorrectly that may prevent you from accessing the printer? Have you tried turning off any firewalls or allowing the necessary ports?

    There are so many variables... can you provide some more details on your current samba setup and some things you've tried to get it working?
