2 desk tops, 2 OS, 1 printer

Specs: Windows XP
I need to connect 2 desk tops; 1 Mac, 1 Linux Ubuntu, to 1 Canon printer. Linux is problem. Iogear GUB211 printer sharing switch doesn't work on Linux. Company response was worthless. Printer works fine when plugged directly to Linux box. Need a plain Y with no electronics inside I think. Can't find Plain Y.

I have done further trouble-shooting. The problem is not the device working with Linux. The problem appears to be one channel of the GUB211 is dead. That channels LED won't light, and it won't pass signal from either computer. Good channel passes signal from both OS.
