Re: Something went wrong.....

I had something similar.  I ended up reinstalling CUPS, deleting and re-adding the printer.  I followed these instructions;

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install --reinstall hpijs

sudo apt-get install --reinstall hpijs-ppds

sudo apt-get install --reinstall printer-driver-hpijs

sudo apt-get install --reinstall printer-driver-hpcups

Then please delete all 3 CUPS printer queues and then add just one printer queue.

Then retest printing.


Your results may vary.......

I searched the internet but did not find anything helpful.

I have two printers installed in my Ubuntu desktop computer. When I tried to change a printer setting for one of the printers, I lost both.

Now I get;

Restarting the computer didn't help, nor did unplugging the USB printer and plugging it back in. 
Somehow it does not let me add a printer anymore. It only allows me to print to file.

ALL suggestions are welcomed....
