I have a printer which has no drivers available for linux. There are only Windows drivers available from the vendor. The printer is Lexmark X2470.
So since I can't install the printer, nor use it with CUPS, I wonder if there is anyway I can share the printer via Samba (or another system), so that a Windows computer on the network can install it as a local printer?
My idea is that I plug in the printer through USB on the Ubuntu Server, and from there share the printer, or the USB port. Then I install the printer on my Windows machine by pointing the installer to smb://usb0001/ or something similar.
Is there anyway to do this? Thank you.
