Re: Printing from a wireless laptop on LAN

The first of these is for printing from Windows. Both the laptop and
desktop are running Linux. The second one, on debiantutorials.org, is
the one I had been using. It seemed straightforward, but the laptop
still does not see the printer.

I restarted cupsd after making this change.
I have verified that the printers that I want the EEE to access are
published, according to CUPS.
between those 2 I got my Vista laptop printing from 2 printers attached to my
Debian Lenny system ..
As I mentioned above, I set CUPS to "Share published printers" on the
desktop and to "Show printers shared by other systems" on the laptop.
Is there something else that I need to do? Do I need to modify any of
the networking config files on the laptop for it to see the published
printer? I don't need drivers on the laptop, do I? That would be a
pain since I had to compile the latest version of gutenprint to
recognize my printer. I'm not sure that I want to try to compile
drivers on the EEE.
Any help appreciated.
