I have Windows7 on one machine. Ubuntu 12.10 on another. I have a printer connected to the Windows7 machine. Basic network home lan setup. The brother printer works fine on windows 7. I setup "share printer" on the windows7 machine. And I want to be able to print from the Ubuntu machine.
On Ubuntu: If I select "New Printer" from the system settings and then Network Printer and the Windows Printer Via SAMBA, I can't find the Windows7 printer. I can find the machine but not the printer.
I even try to manually enter in: smb://workgroup/server/brotherprinter and that still won't work in terms of printing.
When I see the "smb browser", I see the workgroup but not the printer. The screen just hangs trying to refresh the devices. ...
What can I do to print to that printer?
