Have you added the printer through Ubuntu? System -> Administration -> Printing -> New Printer -> New Printer

What make and model of printer is it? Some work under Linux - some don't.

With the printer plugged in and turned on, can you type lsusb in a terminal and copy the output here?

What is the make and model of the printer. This is probably the most important piece of information and you have completely omitted it.

Can you help with this problem?
