    Thanks. This worked around the problem for me too. How can I fix the actual problem? What is this Firewalld business? I am using Zorin OS6

    This worked for me, a very good alternative! This “bug” appears in Ubuntu 12.4. It does not handle multiple printers available on the local network very well. Auto-identifies a Brother as an HP. The HP is turned off.
