fish is used to access the machine via ssh protocol. i guess u r using
kde on ur machines.

you can print directly to ur network printer & access it also. if u
could specify the make & model then i could help you more. but for
some hints, if its an hp network printer u can access it directly via
ipp protocol & it generally listens to port 9100. if you've given ur
printer a specific ip then u can access it's interface via ur web
browser to change/modify settings.

just for your info, if your printer is not a network printer then you
can make one of your linux machine as a print server & share it with
other windows/linux  machines via samba/cups.
