I have la laptop running Ubuntu 13.4 with samba4 at work. My problem is that the office printer is a shared printer on a WinXP desktop runing windows lan manager 2000. These computers are connected to a wireless network. I can install the printer(HP M1212nf) using cups, but when I want to print something the ugly hp notification window appears on the win machine but the printer does nothing. If i print something from the XP I have in a vm on the same laptop it works(also get the ugly hp window). Also I can't mess with the windows machine. Can you help me?
