i have a printer hooked up through usb on my ubuntu breezy pc and id like to share printer with FC4 pc. is there a such thing as an printer share for dummies how-to out there and what is the easiest "program" to share printers. also i was looking at samba but they are saying something about using the same kernel and im thinking fc4 and breezy are different kernels. and im guessing it doesnt help that i dont know my ip as it is dynamic and changes every so often. anyway im looking for a dumbass guide to do this is there a such thing?
both pcs have the same name if that makes a difference.
You should look at CUPS which is probably already installed in ubuntu. You would need to install it in fc4 as well. Then bring up a browser in fc4 and do http://localhost:631 and then install the printer as a network printer.

im not real sure what else it would need also its set for ipp and shoulld i have local or network set on pc with printer attached?
The address is the ip address of the box to which the printer is attached. The printer is left as a usb printer on the host that it is attached to. Basically you are routing printing via the ip address to the printer.
im not sure what else to do im thinking everything is set right oh i have pc with printer attached as a local printer i heard that was good?????????? i dont have a clue anymore i always concidered myself good with pcs but i guess that was windozes crap.
Under kde go K -> Settings -> Printing manager. At the bottom right it should say CUPS. At the top left is Add select this and go through the wizard and on the next screen select network printer via tcp and just follow the wizard.
