ulpt0 is showing and it detects my printer type. Here is the output:

konrad at localhost ~ > dmesg | grep ulpt0
ulpt0: HEWLETT-PACKARD DESKJET 656C, rev 1.10/1.10, addr 2, iclass 7/1

I want to be able to print all popular kinds of files. How can I proceed? 
And how do I know whether my printer is a winprinter or not?

Thank you!
