  • If printer has its own IP address is not a Windows printer, it's just a common printer used by windows machines. If they're printing from Win you can obviously print from Linux
    Please provide these two information:
    - Printer Name and Model
    - Printer connection (USB, Net, ...) if printer is connected to the net you probably don't need so much information, if it's connected to a pc you need something more to configure

  • If you wish to setup Ubuntu to connect to a shared windows printer you can follow the guide at http://www.liberiangeek.net/2010/07/how-to-addconfigure-windows-shared-printer-in-swat-via-samba/. If you are using another distro then I can provide more documentation when you tell us which distro you are using.
