Ok I downloaded the newest version of Ubuntu, now the printer configuration screen it shows idle, I tried to print a test page and still no go. It dosent seem to see the printer at all. I hit the verify button and it cant find it. The printer is showing and the path looks ok,
I have deleted the printer and tried to reinstall still no joy.
I checked in services and printer is checked and I looked and there were several hp items in the Synaptic and downloaded them. still no go.
Thanks for the help guys
any help would be appreciated.

What printer exactly do you have? Some HPs require a firmware upload from the system every time they're powered on.
