Can't print (version 7.10 - Gutsy Gibbon) to a printer connected locally

I apologize in advance for the newbie question. I am very new to
Unbuntu and linux. I installed Ubuntu yesterday and everything works
great except for printing. The only documentation I could find for
how to set up a printer in Ubuntu is in version 7.4. From some
documentation I found online it sounded like the Printer Configuration
dialog is new in 7.10.
I am trying to print to my Lexmark x7350. It is connected directly to
my Ubuntu box via USB
Here are the steps I tried:
The Printer configuration - localhost dialog showed the following information:
Description: Lexmark 7300 Series
Device URI: usb://Lexmark/%207300%20Series
Make and Model: Lexmark 7000 Foomatic/lex7000 (recommended)
Printer State: idle
Default Printer: This is the default printer
I clicked the Print Test Page button and I got a popup:Submitted -
Test page submitted as job 1. I clicked OK to this.
Unfortunately nothing ever printed. I also tried to print from an
Open Office doc - no luck.
Thanks in advance,
