Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
That sounds to me like a driver mismatch, or too-distant sort-of-match, to the printer model in question.
What driver are you using with the Ubuntu system, and what version of Ubuntu is on the system?
Driver sounds close-enough at least, so if the printer simply does not respond and print jobs seemingly go nowhere, I suggest that you look into *where* the print driver is directing prints to. USB01 ? a local network address ? That might need changing.
OK. 1: where is the printer? in terms of the port that it is on, or if on a network, in terms of the network address or reference within the local network ?
2: when you installed and configured the printer's driver, where did you indicate the printer was located?
If you moved the printer back to USB, you need to remove the driver, restart the computer, and reinstall the driver - for USB. Having the printer fail to print after such a move is a familiar symptom.
Deleting the printer probably will serve.
and see if the printer is listed in Printers - ?
In a Terminal window do this command:
is there such a folder? does it have an
Try different USB ports, and try a different USB cable also.
USB ports often differ a lot on one computer - it might be quickest to try the USB ports that are farthest, physically, from the one that fails to print to the printer.
Also, in Terminal window, do the command
and see, having gone through it, see if the printer works.
Let me know, please. Thanks.
