Did you already install printing packages in your distro.
If not you need a full and live internet connection.
as "ssrameez" said go to System> Administration> Printing.
or go to Linux Control Panel.
then click the hardware tab.
look for printer or manage printing/ printer.
then after installation the printer should be detected by your computer.
