I installed a new Epson L355 (wifi) printer in my home router (I did it from the MS Windows boot of my desktop computer). From my desktop computer after booting in Ubuntu 12.04 I could install it and use it without any problem. Later I tried to install it in a Samsung notebook (with Ubuntu 12.04 also) but I am having problems with it.
I started installing (in the notebook) the epson-inkjet-printer-201207w_1.0.0-1lsb3.2_amd64.deb driver and installing the printer in CUPS through localhost:631.
I could even print a test page correctly from within CUPS.
Then I went to the Printers option (now I am using classic
gnome) but no printer appears. Only a message with something
like "printer service not available" (I am translating).
If I write
localhost in the Connect field then I can
see the printer (I could also print a test page from here).
But the printer does not appear when I want to print from
within any application.
CUPS is currently installed and running (I checked that).
I tried reinstalling CUPS and it did not work.
I also looked at the
/etc/cups/error_log file but I
don't understand much of what is written there.
Here goes the last part of it:

What should I do?
