You might try the web interface to CUPS (Common Unix Printing System)
to find out if your printer is recognised. Thats the first step.
In a browser (Firefox, Epiphany, etc) put in this URL:
change the localhost to 127.0.0.1 if nothing happens.
If its not listed, you may have to download a driver, but there's
plenty of answers to users of Ubuntu and Kubuntu on the "problems page"
so you should find an answer there.
