Pinting Over Home Network

I have a HP InkJet Printer connected to my WinXP Desktop and set for sharing. I have an openSUSE 12.1 (fresh install) Laptop.

I cannot figure out how to setup** openSUSE 12.1** to print to the printer over my home network. And yes, I’ve got the Guide and a page on “Printer Operation,” but they do not answer my question :frowning:

I had Linux Mint 10 before and don’t remember being this difficult to setup my printer. I think it had a Wizard that shearched my network (asked for access name & password) for my WinXP Desktop). Found my HP in seconde.

Detailed steps please, I am new to Linux in general.

Try this guide first:

Printer Sharing: Windows Print Server for Suse/openSUSE Linux Clients [Samba and LPD]

Another:

SDB: Printing via SMB (Samba) Share or Windows Share - openSUSE

Hi
The OP might wish to try running hp-setup first…

True. Provided that the Windows printer is advertised correctly, then open a console and run

su -c hp-setup

Choose the ‘Network’ connection type. Is your printer detected correctly?

HP Setup does no see any prointrs.

Does turning off your firewall change that?

NO. Makes no difference.

I think you’ll need to configure manually as ‘Windows Printer via SAMBA’. Via browser:
http://localhost:631/admin
Follow the prompts given. (The firewall advice may still apply while configuring/testing).

Got printing to work, but to my Samsung CLP-620 Color Laser.

Never got my HP DeskJet to work.

Thanks to all those who helped :good:
