Printer installs, status OK, but won't print

Under the newly installed 14.04, a USB-connected HP 1315 PSC installed
cleanly, and its status is OK, but it won't print. A small test job
appears in the queue briefly and then disappears, but on the printer
there is no activity whatsoever.
Printer Properties: Settings: Printer State is currently: Idle - Sending
data to printer.
During installation I selected for the driver: HP LaserJet 1300
Foomatic/pxlmono [en] (recommended), which I think is part of the HPLIP
I do note that though the above was the recommended driver, this is not
a LaserJet but an inkjet, so that is the only suspicious item in my view.
The printer was working fine under Win XP.
The machine is a Pentium 4 @ 1.6 GHz with 500 MB.
How can I troubleshoot this?
