I expect the computer to find the printer on the network so I can install the printer and use it.

4)
I am unable to find the printer in 10.10.

-----------------------------------------------

I upgraded to 10.10 and printing no longer works for me. Ive tried
deleting my printer and re-adding it to no avail. Any help would be
appreciated! All the other 10.04 systems connected to the network print
fine  Just not mine.

Dont know if this will help, but I ran the debugging feature in the
printing section...

http://paste.ubuntu.com/498731/

When looking at the properties of my printer, I see this error:

"Unable to connect to CIFS host, will retry in 60 seconds..."

So to clarify... all the networked computers are running Ubuntu and are
hardwired to the main computer which is XP and has the printer. All
printing works fine with the 10.04 computers. My computer was upgraded
to 10.10 and now printing does not work. I am also unable to find the
network or the printer now as well.

The connection info is (or was):

smb://MSHOME/NET/Printer

Which pulls up nothing. Ive even tried installing the HP Toolbox to see
if it would find the printer and no luck.

Ive also tried finding the printer in http://localhost:631/ with no luck
either.

Maverick doesnt seem to be able to see the network at all now.
