I know there are tons of forums out there helping to configure this specific printer but none of them seem to help me.

I've managed to configured my printer. It appears on "localhost:631"

Description:    Canon PIXMA MG5200
Driver: Canon PIXMA MG5200 - CUPS+Gutenprint v5.2.9 (color, 2-sided printing)
Connection: lpd://
Defaults:   job-sheets=none, none media=iso_a4_210x297mm sides=one-sided

But when I try to print a testpage state switches to: "held since "

If you need any more information just ask. I will provide them as far as i'm capable of (pretty new to ubuntu).
