Printer shared but still invisible
Hi all, I have got this annoying problem with my last linux install, mint 10 on my newest computer. On this pc I got a shared printer which used to work flawlessly under kubuntu 8.04, but now I can't get it reachable from the other pc on the same net.

In localhost:631 cups tells that the printer is shared, firewall is down, all users are allowed to print but this printer never show up!
I can also connect to the cups server from the others pcs, I can see the printer but I don't figure out how to send documents to print in this way.

Can anyone help me?

What operating systems are the other PCs running?

Ops, I found myself the error.

I never noticed that in newer version of ubuntu cups the server should be allowed use the shared printers. After settings this option, everything showed up.
Maybe before there was not this option, or maybe it was turned on by default (or accidentaly by me).
