    I was able to get the sound to work normally.
    I still could use help on the problem not communicating with the laser printer.

    what does
    Code:
    lpinfo -v
    give from a terminal please?

    also: if you open the PRINTERS folder; hit the F1 key ..... that opens a trouble-shooting wizard ............. I wonder if running that gives any clues ............

    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingPrintingProblems Ubuntu offer a wiki: if you feel up to it, if you activate the log that records issues; if you do that, if you post some back here; it would also be of use if you report the issue as a bug to Ubuntu

    change su -C in that command to sudo
    su is not used in ubuntu.

    that is a strange message about cups .......... I can't remember if you have done the "delete cups ........... install cups " routine .......... sadly these types often seem solved when the poor soul posting the problems just gets fed up and does a clean install; and surprisingly everything now works like it should .. I would need to google on these types of error messages to try and guide you through some possible fix ....... sumfin is broken ...........
