Starting new threads with this same subject probably is not going to get
any more help than the thread from 12 hours ago that did get you help.
It just serves to confuse those trying to read the list. 

Did you check the compatible printer list as suggested by NoOp?

Just because it is compatible with some versions does not mean it will
work with the version of Ubuntu you have loaded. 

good luck,
