Hello Linda,
Boot up ubuntu, make sure the printer is correctly hooked up to printer i.e. usb cable is well inserted to the back of the printer and directly to the pc.  If you are using a usb hub, unplug it from the hub and go directly to the pc.  Turn off the pc and the printer.  Pull the pc's power plug out of the power strip for one minute.  Re-insert pc's power plug back in power strip, turn printer on and boot up ubuntu.  Make sure you know your printer's manufacturing company name i.e. brand name and most importantly the exact model name with numbers as it appears on printer.  For instance, HP Deskjet 1510 All-In-One (it could be 1500), the whole thing because you are going to select the printer from a long list.
Double click printers and select yours from a long list, it will get detected and print a test page and voila! it would be working properly.
