very interesting

Can you do a video for Ubuntu 8.10 sharing with Windows. Eliminating the NT Access Denied errors.

5. anonymous Sat, 13 Dec 2008 03:14

thanks for your efforts. I am a newbie to Linux so take my comments with a Lb of salt :) For me it was not clear what the set-up was. The config was run on a Linux machine for sure but where is the printer connected? Locally or to a windows m/c or another linux m/c? My suggestion would be to kindly add a screenshot of the network you are making the set up for in the beginning of the video. It could be obvious to many but I am a little green behind the ears! Thanks, Regards

Review of Connecting to a Windows or Samba Printer

A great help - never would have figured all

this out on my own. And it worked just as

easy as could be. Novell should be paying

Bruce to produce many more videos on

various topics. Great resource. Thanks.

its very interesting

Showmedo is a peer-produced video-tutorials and screencasts site for free and open-source software (FOSS)- with the exception of some club videos, the large majority are free to watch and download.

Educating the Open-source Community With Showmedo

Although as important as the software it supports, education and documentation are relatively neglected in the Open-source world. Coders love to code, and explaining how best to use or improve the software tends to be deferred or even sidelined.

At Showmedo we believe the community can play a vital role here and also say thanks for the tools and software that make our lives easier. If you have a piece of software you love or a programming langugage you are enthusiastic about, why not make a screencast showing others how to use it? All the stuff you wish you'd been told, the tips, tricks, insights that would have saved you time and frustration.

Screencasting is easier than you think, and we're happy to help you. You can emailus for advice or just use some of the how-to screencasts on the site. This screencasting learning-pathis a good place to start.

Kudos and Thanks for Bruce
