Question about Lexmark Color Z43 InkJet
I have a printer that is now connected to a desktop computer. I would like to switch and/or have it connected to my laptop too. Do I have to get more cables to connect the printer to laptop or can I do something on the computer to make it possible?
You need to install driver on laptop as well first.
If you want to connect the printer to two computers at the same time, you need either to plug/ unplug the usb cable each time.
Or you setup a network using a router and share the printer on the network.
Or you buy a printer servet or a printer switch and connect printer to both computer at same time, this is the best solution.
Got to a local retailer, explain what you want and get equipment (eg. printer server or printer switch) to share the printer between the two computer.
If you just need to install drivers on the laptop, use printer disk or follow instructions below:

TO CHANGE THE LANGUAGE:
From the printer control panel, press the 'Spanner' icon.
Press the right arrow button, and then press OK
Press OK again.
Press the arrow buttons until the language that you want appears on the display, and then press OK.
If you are sure, press the right arrow button, and then press OK to change the language.
To print from your macbook laptop you may have to install additional software onto your laptop from the installation CD. Insert the CD and wait for the 'Welcome' screen to appear. (Note if the 'Welcome' screen does not appear after a minute, then click the CD icon on the desktop). Double click 'Install' and follow the screen instructions.
Some additional notes that may apply to your machine(s):
If the printer is connected to a desktop computer through the rear USB port and you decide to connect a laptop computer to the printer through the Quick Connect laptop port, then the Quick Connect laptop port connection overrides the rear USB port connection. The active print jobs on the desktop computer may be cancelled. Pause or cancel active jobs on the desktop computer before switching between ports.
Pause or cancel active jobs on the desktop computer.
Connect a USB cable to the laptop computer and then to the Quick Connect laptop port on the front of the printer.
Warning-Potential Damage: Do not plug in or remove the USB cable from the Quick Connect laptop port while a memory device is being accessed by the printer.
If you have not yet installed the printer software on your laptop then install it now.
Hope this helps
