Go to System -> Administration -> Printing and see if your printer is located under Local Printers.

Let us know,

</bush> is HTML (Webpage code). It's a clever way for me to express my distaste for President Bush while remaining tactful; it is my signature.

Now, as far as your printer are you sure that your printer is still working? Are you dual booting between UB and Windows? If so try printing from Window$ and see if it works there.

Peace
