Good instructions. Actually, since the linux computer is 192.168.1.5
I just pointed my browser to http://192.168.1.5:631

I choose auto-select and got the following message:

Does that mean that I need Gutenprint drivers?
If so, where do I get them?

Hopefully the info above can tell
you whether I need the Gutenprint.
