Hi and welcome to Linuxquestions.
You should go for KDE for a start. Make sure that your computer has alot of ram, because KDE is pretty ressourcedemanding.
I can also recommend Gnome, it runs lighter but in my opinion it is s little 'harder' to configure than KDE.
For a printersetup, check this out: (section called 'printer operation')
The chapter is from the Reference guide. There is also a Startup guide. Both can be found here:
