Windows 7: Sharing printers linked to W7 computer with Linux

Sharing printers linked to W7 computer with Linux

Hello, I am currently sharing 2 of my printers out of my desktop with the local wifi network. I was able to access these printers from other windows devices, but I'm having a bit of "fun" trying to access them from my linux computers.

Any starter tips? I did quite a bit of google search, most explain how to share Linux printers with windows computers, not the other way.
