How Can I Share Printer with 2 Older Macs?

I would appreciate detailed guidance on how to set up printer sharing for two older Macs - assuming that this is even possible in this case. I have the following Macs that work very well independently as well as through a router for internet access.
1. MacMini, 1.5 GHz, Bluetooth+Airport Extreme (approx. 3 yrs old) running OS X 10.5.2 and using Airport for internet access.
2. Power Mac G4, 466 MHz (approx. 7 yrs old) running OS X 10.3.9 and connected directly to the router for internet access.
An HP Deskjet 5940 printer was used exclusively with the MacMini, and a Lexmarl Z53 was used exclusively with the G4. The Z53 just reached the end of its life, and thus I disconnected the 5940 from the MacMini and connected it to the G4 where it now works fine.
In spite of all attempts with various settings at each Mac, I have not been able to get any printing done from the MacMini. What detailed settings/connections do I need to make so that I can use that 5940 printer from the MacMini?
Thanks for your response.

Please note that I reposted my question to the following category where I have already received suggestions:
Mac OS X v10.3 Panther & earlier > Printing & Faxing > "Can I Share a Printer Between OS X 10.3.9 and 10.5.2?"

    How can i share documents with different users on the same mac?

    Shared how? The other users can read the documents or you all can read and write the documents?
    The first is easy just place the documents in /Users/Shared anyone can access the files there and the other users will be able to read them.
    The second is a bit trickier.

    If you have iPhoto on an iOS device rather than a Mac, you can create a 'Photo Journal', which is an online gallery hosted on iCloud: details here -
    This facility is not as yet available in iPhoto on a Mac. If you don't have an iOS device you will need to find a third-party alternative. This page examines some options:

    I need to change a photo into a video file in order to post in youtube. How can I do this with my mac mini?

    When I go to import, the choices are :
    camera archive
    imovie for IOS
    imovie for HD
    It refuses to import a photo with any of these choices, which is located on the desktop or in a folder. It's a regular .jpg
    There are instructions to drag it. I put it there, and it bounces right back. The photo will not stay.
    I just need this one picture to go on so I can post a meditation on youtube.  It doesn't come from a camera.

  • How can you share books with family members?

    I purchased a book in iTunes and it's on my library shelf. How can I share this book with my sister?

    If she has access to your Apple ID she can have your iBook on her device.  If she syncs to the same computer, just sync it to her device.  If she syncs to a different computer, copy the book from your iTunes library onto a flas drive (you'll find it on your hard drive in iTunes>iTunes Music>Books; it's an .epub file), then authorize your Apple ID on her computer (iTunes>Store>Authorize this Computer), then add the book to her library (iTunes>File>Add to Library) where she can sync it to her device.

  • Using outlook to sync multi cals - how can I share cals with 2nd Iphone

    Good afternoon
    I'm helping a friend setup his business. Am using my own copy of Outlook - which 4 calendars has been set up 1. Me 2. Admin 3. Quotes 4. Instalations.
    All four are working well an are synching to my iphone through itunes.
    My friend does not have a computer with outlook. How can I share all four calendars with him, preferably without having to buy more software at this stage.
    Can't two iphone talk to each other?
    Thanks heaps

    You can't do it iPhone to iPhone. You could sync your Outlook with Google Calendar (it's free), and he could sync his iPhone with Google Calendar.

  • How can I share bookmarks with users

    How can bookmarks be shared with users.
    Ideally I would like the users to see or have acces to a folder or link to 'other bookmarks' when they login.
    Any suggestions?
    Thank you

    I puzzled this out a while back. Lets see if i can at least point you in the right direction.
    From the Admin account open System Prefrences>Sharing
    on the left there is a check box for "file Sharing" check this box.
    to the right you can add folders, add "iTunes Media"
    then you can add Users. add the users that can share that folder.
    then open the other account that wants to share that folder.
    open their iTunes>Prefrences>Advanced. Uncheck the box that says "Copy files to iTunes Media folder when adding to library"
    then open Finder and the shared iTunes Media folder should be on the left... (fingers crossed)
    the only problem is that any time you add media to the admin account, you have to go into the other account and add it to that itunes.
    hassle, but it's what i do.
    Good Luck

  • Can I share processing with old macs?

    Hi i realise that in the documentation it is specified that networked machines that share processing should be g4 or g5 but i wondered if i could use an older computer if it is running osx? I noticed another post that said that there was nothing in the way the processing nodes app is written to mean it will only work on g5 or g4s I wonder has anyone tried this with older macs and is there any point to it?

    Thanks Bee, I just like the idea of my old mac helping my new one out. If I was explaining my studio to someone I could then say- "this is the main computer, my powerbook that runs the sequencer and this old computer is used to run a distortion plugin occasionally"
