    Printer sharing on home network


    I just installed Ubuntu. Everything seems to work well.
    I am dual booting with WinXP.
    I am on a home network with a DSL router.
    My printer is hooked to my computer, and I would like
    to be able to print to it from my other computer on the network.

    In WinXP it was shared with all my computers. Where or how do
    I set it to be seen by others.

    Thanks,
    Glad to be back using linux again. Been several years.

    This is usually done with CUPS under Linux. The easiest way to configure CUPS is to go with any browser to "http://localhost:631/admin"
