Is your printer on? Is it jammed? Do you get any errors when you try to print? Does your computer say it printed successfully? What type of printer and how is it hooked up?

When dealing with Linux, knowing the exact model of your printer is necessary. Some HP printers work very well with Linux, others don't.

How did you add your printer to your Linux distro? How is it connected?

That is very bad.

Using the wizard, as said previously.. connected via USB

Some of them do, some don't. They're better than Lexmark, which basically told me to screw off when I asked about drivers.

Hello,

Might be your printer has jammed, or a problem in configuration setting.

So you would have to check your printer setup setting.
