I could not make my Canon LBP6000 printer work in ubuntu. I have installed it in my guest os (windows xp) in virtual box. Now I want to use that printer in the guest os from Ubuntu. Is it possible at all? And if yes how?

Thanks

It depends. How is this printer connected to your computer?. If it is USB, then you can. –  Javier Rivera May 11 '12 at 6:43
