How do I make a network printer in my desktop computer which has Ubuntu 12.10 as its main OS? I plan to connect my laptop computer (Windows 7 Home Basic) to a network printer through my desktop.

Thank you and more power.

    perhaps to Choose Add new printer in Printing dialogue box then click open 'Network Printers', select 'Windows Printer via SAMBA'

    Windows clients cannot connect to shared printers
