I am using a linux workstation and trying to print to a network printer.  

Whether using the lpr command or using the printing window when making an attempt to print a pdf file or any other type of file, I obtain this error message:  


I think at first I got an an error message indicating that the printer information failed to be obtained.  But then later I got that error message.  

What can I do to fix this error?
