I'm hoping someone can help. I have never used a printer on ubuntu before.

  • I recently set up my epson NX430 which is supposed to work as a wireless printer. It doesn't even come with a printer cable. I set up the printer to access my wireless network which it seems to do.

  • I added the printer via "printers" in system settings. Ubuntu was able to detect and add the printer without any trouble.

  • However, whenever I try to print something, nothing prints, and the print manager thing says "not connected" and never prints. I tried pinging the IP address that the printer displays and get nothing back. I also tried entering the printer's IP address in my browser and it fails to load. Is there something I can do to get this working? Thanks for any help.
