Printer sharing and passwords.
« on: December 18, 2012, 09:31:16 AM »
I just fixed and reinstalled a linux OS (ubuntu 12.04LTS) on a mini-9 netbook a day or so ago. Problem is I am trying to access a printer shared from a xp desktop and it wants a password/authentication of some sort. I have 2 printers, one color and one black and white for text. The monotone one is the one is the one having issues. While it appears to be installed correctly on the linux end, it wants a password for the workgroup and as far as I know I never set it up with one. Is there a way to check or even recover the password just so I wont have to reinstall the network onto all the other computers?
