I am trying to add my Samsung CLP-610 Printer.

Okay, I bet that your printer has a web server. Do you know the network address of the printer? You should be able to obtain that address from the printer itself at the front panel.Fire up the your VM and boot windows. From a web browser on the VM, browse to the IP address of the printer. If that works, great.Then, install the drivers for the printer. I am guess
I have a clean install of Ubuntu 13.10, the printer is on a fixed IP address (10.1.1.205, set in the router, printer still gets this IP address via DHCP), and also connected to the workstation via the USB cable. I can add the printer either as a wifi printer or as a connected printer, selecting the printer type as a 'generic ZjStream' printer.
I am running Ubuntu 13.10 joined to Active Directory using Centrify Express. Everything is working fine with the AD. However, I am trying to install a printer shared from a Windows server (joined to the AD). Every attempt to install the shared printer it is installed as it was connected locally to the Ubuntu computer.
WIndows/Arch Linux dual-boot PC connected by USB cable to Canon PIXMA MP640 printer. I have a laptop with Xubuntu installed which I am trying to connect to the printer by Wi-Fi. Both the desktop PC and the laptop are connected to a Linksys modem/router by ethernet and wireless respectively.
why is this so hard? I can reach my printer by
When I do system-config-printer, the printer makes some noises, then I get the printing-localhost dialog. I try to add a printer, but nothing seems to make sense. Under IPP it asks for a host. I type in the IP, but the "forward" button remains grey. what an I supposed to do to add this network printer?
