Printer not printing but showing in Linux

I am a newbie to Linux, posting to know few details. I had installed Linux Mint 14 in my computer, when I had connected my Printer ( HP 1010 laserjet) it automatically detected the printer and shown as the printer is added.

I tried to give print to test the printers working condition it shows that the print out is going to printer but its not printing, when i switch to windows it works fine and the printer prints without any issue.

How to correct this and make the printer work?

Does the lpq command shows you anything ?
See also man lpq

The output is jay....@user ~ $ lpq
HP-LaserJet-P1007 is ready
no entries

man lpq opens the manual file for the lpq, there is no printer queue here but the print is not working properly.

Any support regarding this will be highly appreciated
