I realise that this would have been more useful advice back when you
asked the original question, but the System -> Administration ->
Printers control panel under Ubuntu would probably have been an easier
way of doing things, rather than fiddling around re-enabling the web
interface and using that.  (Or did that not work?)  Something to
remember for next time - sometimes there really is an easy and obvious
(at least in retrespect) way of doing things.
