I noticed when I upgraded to 12.04 that Samba didn't re-install
automatically. Don't know if you're printing via Samba, but if you are,
this could be the problem. I also installed my Canon drivers, etc. and
then wondered why I couldn't see my printer on the network. Installing
Samba solved the problem.
