    What version of CUPS do you have installed? Btw. CUPS is the Print Subsystem that OS X utilizes.

    From your local browser put in this url: http://localhost:631.

    Turn web access on in System Preferences if it doesn't respond.

    Verify that your Printer configuration meets your requirements.

    CUPS version with OS X is not the latest one.

    I recently installed CUPS 1.2.2 which is available:

    I'd trouble shoot using CUPS web site for more information. When you've read up on it you can upgrade your print system. I'd make sure you also download the latest GIMP-Print Universal Driver Package as well: It's now entitled Gutenprint.

    The file you'll want is gutenprint-5.0.0.U.dmg

    What is the manufacturer and model of your printer?
