Hi my name is Angelos (means Angel) and i am from Greece. I am a school teacher and recently I installed Lite 3.8 to an IT lab using some Hp7400 Dx desktops.
The problem I am facing is that in one of the machines (acting as server), I have a lexmark printer working locally trough USB and I am trying to share this printer to the others.

All settings on the "server" look OK but i cannot see the printer from the "clients".

Please note that I have close to zero experience with linux.

Any help would be appreciated!!!

@Angelos Kouniaris ,


Go to the manual at https://www.linuxliteos.com/manual/ and click on Printing.  There is a section on sharing printers.
