    printer install

    Hey...new to the world of ubuntu, but love it already. I have a new HP 3520 deskjet printer I am trying to install wirelessly on a laptop with ubuntu 12.04.

    The general landscape of my network is a wireless router, wireless printer on the network through the router wirelessly, 4 laptops in the house.

    I have successfully installed the printer on 2 laptops that have Win 7 and Win 8 OS, the 3rd laptop uses OS ubuntu 12.04....it seems as if I have sucessfully installed the printer on this laptop....my issue is that when I try to print a test page, or print from any app nothing gets printed.

    I have installed and deleted the printer a few times....its currently installed and has a green check on its icon....when i install it and go to print the test page, the dialogue box reads..... Processing-connecting to printer, then flashes -rendering, then idle - ready to print. It seems there is some sort of connection signal happening from the laptop to printer since the printer's LED screen lites up when I start the print a test page request.

    The printer works 100% from other laptops, the router is working, wireless connections are 100% between laptops and router......

    So needless to say I am baffled at the moment.......once I solve this problem my next conquest will be installation on the 4th laptop that has dual OS....ubuntu and Win 7...

    It needs hplip 3.12.6, and 12.04 has only 3.12.2, so try the newer version from the hplip site.
