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 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.
