I'm using Ubuntu 11.10 on two machines. One has a USB printer connected. I want to share this printer with the other over the wireless network.
Printing > Server > Settings:
Publish shared printers connected to this system and
Allow printing from the internet enabled. All other checkboxes are disabled.
When I right click on the printer icon, I can see
shared are ticked.
On my other machine, I can now click on
add network printer. It finds the machine name of the server and correctly identifies the printer.
However, print test page fails. Under printer properties the printer state says:
Processing - Unable to connect to printer; will retry in 30 seconds...
What's gone wrong?
