i got a problem:

i got a Shinko CHC-S2145 printer and have to print from Ubuntu 12.04 (x86) - i need some special features that are only aviable with a linux machine. I installed VirtualBox and created a VM with Win7 Pro (x86).

I've installed the shinko drivers on windows - mounted the printer (USB2.0) on the VM and i could print.

Now I need to print from Ubuntu through Windows. I can add the printer as samba share (host-only adapter) but it needs the drivers (i dont have..).

I've tried lots of other drivers, i tried to install driver software with wine - but it didn't worked at all.

So is there a way to add the print from the VM to Ubuntu without additional drivers?
