    Printer suddenly not found today

    Using Ubuntu 12.04 (64 bit) I attempted to print today, and the only option offered was "Print to file" My Samsung ML-2251N had dissapeared from the printer configuration! Bringing up the Printing - localhost "Add printer" and "start service" are both grayed out.

    After many attempts without success, I re-booted back into Ubuntu 11.10 and my printer was found without any input by me and it printed normally!

    I welcome some knowledgeable assistance.

    My first suggestion was to make sure it was plugged in.

    Someone posted this before, it just purges & reinstalls cups.

    apt-get purge cups
    apt-get --purge autoremove
    apt-get install cups
