I can't get Ubuntu to see my printer. It is hooked up to my
computer through a USB cable. In the past install it worked
fine. But on this new install, when I go to system settings
and click on printer I get a box that says: "Printing
services not available. Start this service on this computer
or connect to another server." The ADD button is shaded out.
I checked and CUPS is installed. What am I missing?

Did you try installing it using CUPS in your web browser ?
If you have your old Cups configuration files from a
previous version copying them to
/etc/cups and restarting cups usually works
