For shared printing, we have an older G-4 iMac running 10.3 that is connected via USB to an HP 3055 printer. We access the printer through the shared printer function from other Macbooks. Until we installed 10.5 Leopard on these Macbooks, we had no trouble printing at all. We would simply click print on the MacBook, and select "shared printer" in the drop-down window. Ever since the Leopard conversion, we cannot access the shared printer function. We have repeatedly checked to see if we are all connected to the network (yes) and as well have checked the "shared printer" buttons on the older G-4. But still nothing.
Anyone have any ideas? Could this be a 10.5 Leopard issue?
QUOTE Thanks
