Disconnect any locally connected printers from your computer
Open 'Printers' from your Xubuntu menu or enter system-config-printer from a terminal
The 'Printers - localhost' dialog opens with the message "There are no printers configured yet"
The status bar at the bottom of the dialog says "Connected to localhost"

This test will check that a new printer will be recognized automatically

With the 'Printers - localhost' dialog still open, turn on your printer and connect it to the computer
The printer is automatically recognized and appears in the dialog window

This test will check that the printer prints

Double-click on the printer icon

The test page prints

The 'Set Default Printer' dialog appears
Select the 'Set as the system-wide default printer' option

Click the 'Delete' button
The printer icon disappears
Repeat with the other printer
The printer icon disappears and the dialog now indicates 'There are no printers configured yet.'

This test will check that a printer can be shared from another computer
Note: this test is optional and requires a second computer running a *buntu flavor

Connect the printer to the other computer which will act as the "server"
Open 'Printers' from the Xubuntu menu on that computer
From the menu, select Server->Settings
The 'Server Settings' dialog opens
Confirm that 'Publish shared printers connected to this system' is checked
Click OK
The 'Server Settings' dialog closes

Follow the prompts to do some basic troubleshooting to the point where you can print a test page
The troubleshooting screens appear as expected and a test page prints

Did a slight variation on the test. I used a network-connected wireless printer instead of a locally connected one. I was also able to test the published sharing.
