    I'm trying to print from Ubuntu to my LaserWriter 4/600PS. I've installed Netatalk which ostensibly will allow me to use the AppleTalk protocol. There is a post on the Ubuntu forums which says that if I install Netatalk, and then issue the nbplkup command, I should be able to see the name of the printer, but I'm not able to. This command does, however, seem to confirm that AppleTalk is running.

    If there's anyone here who has successfully done this, perhaps you might clue me in to what I've missed doing.

    Thanks.
