my printer is a hp d1360 and it was working fine until I update to ubuntu 11.10.

although I can print the test page and the status of the printer is ready to print. I cannot print anything fron firefox, document viewer, libreoffice. I downloaded the HPLIP software fron and installed, but still isn't working. only printer test page is working.

I ran the debugger and it says it could be a bug problem if somebody could help me I will appreciated. I paste the troubleshooting logs below thanks.

Same problem with my netbook. I found the following solution in the internet:

Got to the HP website and download the hplip hplip download

When downloading HP provides you with a good installation guide.

By following the instructions you add a new printer to your system. When printing choose the new installed printer and it will hopefully work.
