I have ubuntu, and an hp deskjet printer, so I download HPLIP, then wine, then I install autorun so I could reinstall the printer's cd but the printer shows as my default printer it even shows when I try to print that its printing and then says printing complete but NOTHING PRINTS:confused: I'm so lost I have no idea what to check or do next when I try to install printer cd of course its for window and or mac but I thought with wine there wouldn't be a problem I install autorun and everytime I try to run it it gives me and error it can't find autorun.....HELP PLEASE

Have you tried System -> Admin -> Printing clicking "Add" and adding it...?

it already says hp deskjet1600 series mine is a deskjet1660 but that would be considered 1600 series right

Yup. Just make sure it's set to your default printer and you should be all set.

it says its set to my default printer but still doesn't print so I went in to add my specific printer and it gets to a page where it asks me to select driver downloadable driver is high lighted put I can't click on the forward button does it matter if it says 1600 series if I have a 1660 because with the 1600 series it says that its printing and job complete but nothing prints I'm so confused
