OK, so I have dabbled with Linux for a while but nothing too serious (so bear with me). Have set up Ubuntu as a main desktop and wanted to add a networked printer. Have set this up while ago using Lubuntu and all worked fine. However, this time I am struggling and have read a large number of threads but nothing helps. I cannot print and am getting various errors mainly saying that the printer is not found etc. I have used nmap and am getting "all 1000 scanned ports on (printer IP) are closed". This is rather odd, it's an out of the box install. Have tried disabling iptables, same result. On the machine where I have lubuntu installed I get Port State Service 91000/tcp open jetdirect
I can ping the IP address of the printer
Any idea what might be wrong? Is there something wrong with my network profile? firewall? Something different?
