I just connected an HP Deskjet 1000 series to a 148b HP notebook. The notebook reads the printer as (HP Deskjet 1000 j110). After the driver installed and the printer made available under "printing" app," a print test.
Right-clicked the printer icon and selected properties. Under the "settings" tab, I selected "print test page". The "printer state" notification box displayed, "processing-sending data to printer. Then it changes to, "idle-sending data to printer". Which at this point nothing happens. I did this multiple times. Also, re-installed the printer driver. Still the same issue.
I tried the same printer on my desktop running ubuntu 12.04 with unity. The printer works fine.
Is there a reason why this would happen?
