I am using Lubuntu 13.10 (recently upgraded) and am trying to print to a network printer (HP photosmart 7960) through my router (US Robotics 5461). My printer is connected to the router via USB cable. Normally, I would use the cups configuration interface to set up the wireless connection to the printer. I was able to use the printer through the router wirelessly, using Ubuntu 12.04.

Now, with my recently upgraded Lubuntu 13.10, I am unable to get the Cups config webpage (http://localhost:631) to come up.

In Chromium, I get: This web page is not available.

In Firefox, I get: Unable to connect. Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at localhost:631.

The CUPS config file details are below.

I have this website to help with the router connections for Linux:

http://www.usr.com/support/5461/5461-files/printer_installation_linux/index.html

My printer's address through the router is:

http://192.168.2.1:1631/printers/My_Printer

Can you tell me how to fix this?

Or, what to add to the cups configuration file to make this work?

Please help.

Thanks
