Printer not printing but showing in Linux


Hello

I am a newbie to Linux, posting to know few details. I had installed Linux Mint 14 in my computer, when I had connected my Printer ( HP 1010 laserjet) it automatically detected the printer and shown as the printer is added.

I tried to give print to test the printers working condition it shows that the print out is going to printer but its not printing, when i switch to windows it works fine and the printer prints without any issue.

How to correct this and make the printer work?

The output is jay....@user ~ $ lpq
HP-LaserJet-P1007 is ready
no entries

.
man lpq opens the manual file for the lpq, there is no printer queue here but the print is not working properly.

Any support regarding this will be highly appreciated
