    Have you seen this? Did you configure the printer through the CUPS configuration utility?

    ...and this printer is attached to the Ubuntu machine? Did you configure it up as a local printer? Have a look at this.

    If the printer was attached to another box and you were trying to print through CUPS, I'd say it might be a firewall/ports type issue, or maybe the CUPS daemon wasn't running. As things are, I'm just not sure. I've never tried running a printer in Ubuntu, but I have in regular Debian. Of all the distros I've used with my HP printers, I've had a harder time getting them configured and running under Debian than any of the others. That's just been MY experience. I'm grasping here, but have you tried running the printer as sudo? A permission issue possibly?
