Don't keep all the details to yourself if you want help.

You're on WHICH distro using WHICH printing setup. Your printer is WHICH type, ... driver ...firmware...etc.
What happens exactly when you try. Error where from what? Most mistakes have already been made and we're willing to share experience.
