I am not sure how to explain this, have you printed other things
successfully with this printer?
Also, if it is an HP printer you may need to install hplip to make
things easier.
What type of Printer are you using?

Yes!!  However I am not sure who runs the site.  I just hang out here
and answer questions because Lubuntu has a special place in my heart :)

Yes it is very heavy to use to simply print a picture, you may try using
imagemagick's display program to print.  If there is no desktop file for
it you can use the one I attached

Eye of Gnome is heavier than the default, but I do not like the default,
and never use it, so I cannot say why it will not print.
Also do not worry about your language you speak very well, and I do not
think you have been rude in the slightest.  Many of us are computer
people so we like concise to-the-point mail :)

Sure you can do that but I think in line with the Unix philosophy it
would be better to use something small that works instead
The desktop file I attached is for the imagemagick program called
display.  You can set it as the default file handler for images in the
file manager pcmanfm (ask if you need help)
Printing from it should work, but some printers need special
considerations to work correctly.

No problem, that is why we are here as a community, we all need help

And if you need help making a script for something don't feel bad
asking.  There are more than one of use that write scripts here.  And
there are some nice tools (like zenity) to make the script look like a
'normal' program for people that do not like using a terminal.
And if you make a really nice program some of us might want to use it
for ourselves at some point :)
