Good Morning to all CLUGers
I have recently revisited Linux with a view to giving Windows the big
heave ho. Having tried all of the major distro's with varying degrees
of success and have chosen Ubuntu as the one to pursue. I have
successfully got all of my hardware working including a wireless link
from my laptop to the net having found guidance in various forums about
using ndiswrapper. I am now at the point of trying to set up printer
However, as I do not understand networking technology I am completely
bemused by all of the jargon that pervades the various "How Tos"
available on the 'net. Is there someone out there who can provide me
with some guidance in words of one syllable or less on how to establish
the ability to print to my printer connected via usb to my desktop PC
from my laptop via the established wireless link?
I have a Dlink modem/router. Desktop is connect via cable, Laptop via
Pcmcia wireless card.
my thanks in anticipation
