1. Most printers allow you to print a test page by hitting some buttons on the printer (read the printer manual for info). Try this and see if the printer works normally.
2. Assuming you have CUPS installed open your browser and go to this page: http://localhost:631/
. Click on the Printers
item from the Menu running across the top of the page. You should now see your printer name and model appear. Click on this name and you should now see two drop-down menus. Click on the menu on the left called Maintenance
and select Print Test Page. Click on this and see if your printer prints the test page.
