Have you installed cups? Have you found a driver to support your printer? Have you configured the printer?

I config from the control panel.

Which cups I need to install?

Code:
$ sudo apt-get install cups
cups                          cupsys-driver-gimpprint
cupsomatic-ppd                cupsys-driver-gimpprint-data
cups-pdf                      cupsys-driver-gutenprint
cupsys                        cupsys-pstoraster
cupsys-bsd                    cupsys-pt
cupsys-client                 cupsys-server
cupsys-common
Code:
$ sudo apt-get install cups

Package cups is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package cups has no installation candidate

It's installed
Code:
$ sudo apt-get install cupsys

cupsys is already the newest version.
The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:
  libswt3.2-gtk-jni
Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.

You need the cups system running. Once it is running, open a web browser, and enter

http://localhost:631

That will get you to the administration stuff. Log in as root, and add your printer. You need to know what driver to load. Look on http://www.linuxprinting.org for the driver that supports your printer. Add the printer, and try test page. It should print.

I read the posts on the other forum. Did you install the package requested, and did you try and reconfigure the printer? The package requested was 'hpoj'.

Have you looked on linuxprinting.org for the recommended driver? Is this the driver you are using?
