[xubuntu-users] Sharing a printer

I used to be able to share my printer in the past, but my current setup 
has me baffled.

I have a desktop running Xubuntu 12.04. My HP printer is attached via a 
USB cable. I also have a laptop running Xubuntu 13.04. I have been going 
mad trying to get the laptop to find/work with the printer.

No matter what I try the printer is not found by the laptop. The printer 
works fine from the desk top computer. What I do at the moment is send 
myself an email from the laptop with the document as an attachment. Then 
I can open and print the attached document from the desk top computer. 
There must be an easier way??

Any help to point me in the right direction gratefully received. I do 
have sharing enabled on both.
