Default Printer will not work


I am connected to a (non-local) printer on the local network. The
printer works nice from windows machines, but from ubuntu
(neither 8.04 nor 8.10) am I unable to print. What might be the
problem. I am using the troubleshooting guide, which cannot
solve the problem, but gives the following information output:

Page 1 (Choose printer):
{'cups_dest': <cups.Dest object at 0x8c4de40>,
'cups_instance': None,
'cups_queue': 'LaserJet-1005',
'cups_queue_listed': True}
Page 2 (Check printer sanity):
{'cups_device_uri_scheme': u'socket',
'cups_printer_dict': {'device-uri': u'socket://',
'printer-info': u'LaserJet-1005',
'printer-is-shared': True,
'printer-location': u'',
'printer-make-and-model': u'HP LaserJet 1005
Foomatic/foo2zjs (recommended)',
'printer-state': 3,
'printer-state-message': u'No %%BoundingBox:
comment in header!',
'printer-state-reasons': [u'connecting-to-device'],
'printer-type': 36868,
'printer-uri-supported': u'ipp://localhost:631/
'is_cups_class': False}
Page 3 (Printer state reasons):
{'printer-state-message': 'No %%BoundingBox: comment in header!',
'printer-state-reasons': 'connecting-to-device'}
Page 4 (Print test page):
{'test_page_attempted': True,
'test_page_job_id': [13],
'test_page_job_status': [(13, 'LaserJet-1005', 'Test Page')],
'test_page_successful': False}
Page 5 (Printer state reasons):
{'printer-state-message': 'Attempting to connect to host on port 9100',
'printer-state-reasons': 'connecting-to-device'}

Hopefully this can lead somebody to a solution.



"Perhaps there is no such thing as unilateral power. After all, the
man 'in power' depends on receiving information all the time from
outside. He responds to that information just as much as he 'causes'
things to happen...it is an interaction, and not a lineal situation.
But the myth of power is, of course, a very powerful myth, and
probably most people in this world more or less believe in it. It is a
myth, which, if everybody believes in it, becomes to that extent
self-validating. But it is still epistemological lunacy and leads
inevitably to various sorts of disaster."
