Printing from Linux to an HP OfficeJet 5510 on XP Pro via CUPS

It has taken me what seems like forever to find a way to print from my mandrakelinux box to a windows printer. Today, at home thanks to a great New England storm - spending a couple of hours reading and about an hour on the internet, I came upon this post. Five minutes after I finished the article I was able to send a test print to the printer successfully.

If it wasn't for the linux community I'd still be pounding my head against a wall. I cannot express my thanks too loudly. Thank you.http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...readid=229806#

If you have a space in your Windows Username, you can use %20 to represent it.

I've just spent all morning on this and am finally printing. In case it helps anyone, I noticed that when I type
smbclient -L <IP address of Windows XP machine>
(in my case: smbclient -L 192.168.1.3)
the share name of my printer is not what I thought it was (i.e. Canoni56 instead of Canoni560).

Also there seem to be many different ideas on how to set the device URI in CUPS ... I found that the IP address was the only thing that worked.

So I set the device URI to smb://192.168.1.3/Canoni56 and now I'm printing

Can we do this the other way around? I have my Officejet attached to my Linux box. I would like to have printers running Windows print from this machine.

The printer is shared via Samba, but I can't install Windows drivers for it.
