Noble, I feel your pain. Try this, it worked for me.
>From my earlier post...
"...For some reason I opened SERVER (above NEW) in SYSTEM/ADMINISTRATION/PRINTING/PRINTER CONFIGURATION - LOCALHOST. In desperation, I checked Show Printers Shared by Other Systems & Publish Shared Printers Connected To This System. Everything works like a charm. I don't know if both actually need to be checked but that can be worked on later."
As for switching to Ubuntu; it's great, but, with limitations. I read somewhere that Linux is 80% complete & that sounds about right. But, for it to be a good desktop PC you need lots of hardware support. Printer driver support for older printers is virtually non-existent. If you're into iPods & Walkman's it's very limited there, too.
Good luck to you & try my suggestion. It worked for me!
