Printing from Debian to printer connected to ubuntu 9.04 box. Samba and Cups.
I have a mixed network (Linux and win). Printer is connected to Ubuntu 9.04 box. My computer has Debian Lenny 64 and there are also win computers.
I've installed samba and cups. So, I can share folders from all the computers (linux and win) and win computers can also print to the printer connected to ubuntu.
How can I print from my Debian computer to the printer connected to the ubuntu box? I think this should be easy but I need your help my friends.
The computer with ubuntu has now a dynamic IP. Should I assign a fixed IP to it to make things easier.
Thanks in advance,
you need to give some information. what have you tried? where is it failing?
cups should be enough - you don't need samba for printing between linux machines.
have you got cups-server installed on ubuntu?

I've added this line:
Allow From 192.168.1.*
application/octet-stream application/vnd.cups-raw 0 -
All was modified in the computer with ubuntu and the printer attached.
Thanks again for such a valuable help.
Does the printer show up on debian or not?
If you go to localhost:631 on debian, do you have "show printers from other systems" checked?
Regarding to your question, yes, show printers was checked.
