how can i get sharing printer from windows 7??
1st check the share name of the printer on command line by running:
smbclient -L <ip/hostname of the win7 machine>
after getting the printer share name add this by running system-config-printer on debian and follw from below:
New printer -> Give any name of the printer -> Windows printer via samba -> (here give the printer share name) after smb://
e.g. /192.168.0.100/HPLaserJ ( HPLaserJ is the share name of the printer on 192.168.0.100) -> Give username and password to access the machine -> select printer type or manually add the ppd file if you have downloaded the driver from the printer website -> select the model -> apply
