I just started using Ubuntu and I can't get my printer to work. The printer is a HP laser jet 1020. Please help.

Asked by Rajeev on 2007-01-02

I tried to print something and nothing happened. I looked in and noticed that the printer has been recognized, but nothing happens. I then checked the log and found that the jobs were all in there. Please advise.

Is the printer directly connected or on a network?
