My brother bought a Xerox WorkCentre 3045 printer, but even after intalling the drivers I can't get it to work. It is a wireless printer, and is detected when going to printers, installing it works, but it just won't print. I haven't tried connecting it with Usb.

Printing a test page from the setup wizard makes the printer state "Idle - Processing page 1..."

Going to "http://localhost:631/" (cups) shows the printer there, but the job state is 'stopped "Filter failed"'.

The cups page says the printer is connected on socket://

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Did you install drivers from Xerox site or those suggested by Ubuntu? You could also try to connect it via the second option (DNS-SD or whatever the name is). At least this is what is working for me
