Right now, I cannot print anything and would appreciate any help or work-around. I do not see anyplace to enter either Start or run. Deleting the queue doesn’t involve the printer drivers and software. If they then fail and you find yourself needing to re-install them then something else completely is going on.

This is because you’re sending a PostScript test page to the printer raw. If your printer model is not listed, please read the additional howto about adding a special type of PPD’s known as Foomatic PPD’s to your CUPS installation.
