    Is it turned on?

    If it is turned on and still doesn't print then use this link - http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web...ard/index.html

    You came empty handed, that is how you shall leave. Whatever you claim as yours today, belonged to someone else yesterday, will be someone else's tomorrow.

    Can you see your printer if you open firefox and type:
    localhost:631/printers

    You don't need to download anything. Your printer is supported out of the box in ubuntu 9.04/9.10

    Just click on your System-->Administration-->Printing Can you see printer there?

    That means you printer drivers are loaded and it should work fine.

    Check your printer whether it is on and try to print again.
