Linux + printing page spits out blank pages

Instead of using local Linux utility use cups web admin.

Steps:

1. open localhost:631  in your browser (if you are unable to access this )
           1.1 check if you have proxy (in your browser setup for by passing localhost)
           1.2 if that is not the case do you have cups installed and running (check it using ps -fel |grep cups))
2. goto administration.
3. select show printer shared by other system (if the printer is on network)
4. then select add a printer from admin page (use all default settings).
5. Print a test page if you like.
