[GLLUG] Seeing a wifi printer

I have just set up a wifi printer (an Oki MC562W) and this works okay
with my Windows 7 machine. However, I can't seem to see it from my
Linux OpenSuse 12.2 machine, running Samba 3.6.7 (the latest one in the
repository). There's a workgroup called "printerver" that has appeared,
which I assume has something to do with the printer, but when I try to
open that I get told "can't access smb://printserver".

Has anyone any ideas as to what is going on?

 All the best,
