You need to frame your problem accurately. Tell us what linux distribution are you using? what printer do have ? what brand? type (usb or non-usb). Also did you check this site to check whether your printer has drivers to work under linux. This is the first step you should do so that people can help you out.

Probably, the printer is not configured. I dont know if that would work for you, look at this site.
