i have three printers at my home all of the computers are hooked up to a computer that are on my network. I have a ubuntu laptop, mac os x 10 laptop, and a hp running windows xp how do i get the printers to be able to print on the network

Thanks for the help

Does OSX and Ubuntu have workgroups like windows does?

Are the printers set to be shared? and have you run the network setup wizard on your windows computer?

It might be weird printing from a MAC computer, because they transmit printing packets in a different protocol i believe. You might need the MAC drivers installed on the windows pc to accept the packets...

But, this would be a problem if you could see the printer, and you are not there yet. So nvm...
