    So what's the question? If you want to know what's going on, post the *exact* text of the error message. If you want to know how to fix it, post the *exact* text of the error message.

    Some places to check would be http://localhost:631. This is where you can administer your cups settings (including printers installed). Head to 'Manage Printers' or 'Printer Administration' (can't remember which it is) and check the settings for your networked printer, making sure they are correct.
