How to configure a network printer and scanner on Ubuntu desktop

In a previous article, we discussed how to install several kinds of printers (and also a network scanner) in a Linux server. Today we will deal with the other end of the line: how to access the network printer/scanner devices from a desktop client. For this setup, our server’s (Debian Wheezy 7.2) IP address is 192.168.0.10, and our client’s (Ubuntu 12.04) IP address is 192.168.0.105. Note that both boxes are on the same network (192.168.0.0/24).
