My office network is Windows 2003 domain server based one. We have a shared printer connected to a Windows 2000 machine. I tried to configure this printer as my default printer in Ubuntu 5.10 laptop. I tried with the GUI tool availabe in System->Administration->Printing. It was not successful. After googling I found a simple way to do this. Here is the hint. I have installed samba and cups.

1. Changed the DeviceURI entry in /etc/cups/printers.conf as shown below:

DeviceURI smb://<domain>/<domainuser>:<password>@<printserver-machine>/<printer-share-name>

2. # /etc/init.d/cupsys restart

This is what I did. It works fine. 🙂
