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,

Hi glore

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?

No need.

This I the things I've added and uncommented.

/etc/cups/cupsd.conf
I've added this line:
Allow From 192.168.1.*

/etc/cups/mime.convs
application/octet-stream application/vnd.cups-raw 0 -

/etc/cups/mime.types
application/octet-stream

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?

Thanks for all your help! Now I could add the printer through System and printers - network printers.

Regarding to your question, yes, show printers was checked.
