printer won't print

I'm trying to print on a canon bubblejet printer.  I've set it up and
got it working previously, but for some reason (since an upgrade to
slink), it no longer works.

I had lprng installed, and when I sent something to the printer it
would happily pretend to do it, but after a while it gives the message
(with lpq) "stalled".  And nothing is printed --- it claims however
that the entire file has been sent to the printer.

I decided to switch to the "lpr" package instead of lprng and it still
doesn't work, but this time it just gives the message:

$ lpq
lp is ready and printing
Rank   Owner      Job  Files                                 Total Size
active mark       0    test.txt                              36 bytes

but nothing is printed.

Any ideas on what could be wrong or what to look at?
