Sharing a printer with two linux (Mint) boxes

Reddit - Fri, 2017-09-08 11:07

I'm running linux mint on two pc's and try to share a printer. The printer is hooked to the usb port on one of the pc's. CUPS is supposed to make it easy but I am stuck. On the other pc CUPS can see the shared printer but when I click on it firefox complains that "ipps://otherbox/printers/samsung" is not understood. What is IPPS? has anyone any advice on linux printer sharing? Also, this is a Samsung laser and Samsung installed a new driver on the first pc when I plugged in the USB cable and I don't know if I need to add that driver to the other box.

Running "Google Backup and Sync" via wine

Reddit - Fri, 2017-09-08 10:25

Currently i am successfully running Google Photos uploader via wine, due to /u/plectrumdt4 s excellent hint with the import of a Regex Key (https://www.reddit.com/r/linux/comments/37ptsw/any_got_the_new_google_photos_backup_desktop/)

Has anyone figured it out if you can use a similar method for the new "Backup and Sync" Tool?

I have already looked into the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\DriveRegistry key which seems to be the place where the Backup and Sync tool stores its settings. There is an OAuthToken stored, but no associated mail address or whatever stored.

Maybe we can figure this out together. Since i currently have no access to a Linux machine, i cannot tell if it is even possible to complete the login process solely via wine, without the need of importing a Registry Key.

As soon as i have access to a linux machine (i am at work right now, but thinking of building a quick VM) i will investigate further - but maybe someone else has done some research as well?
