[SOLVED] Printer won't print and shows "Idle - Filter failed"

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I've just had this problem in Mint14 (which is basically Ubuntu something with extra bits). Description of problem: Printer doesn't print. System > Administration > Printers Double click the printer. Under Settings the 'Printer State:' is 'Idle - Filter failed'. Solution: Reinstall the printer :) Under System > Administration > Printers Click '+ Add' and follow the instructions. Cause: I don't know the cause of the problem, but this solution worked for me.
