How to install nework printer / FirewallD??

Do I need to install FirewallD to use a network printer?


-------------------------------
Step one appears to be remove the possibly bad driver and try cups.
How do I remove the 7045 (earlier #) driver that shows in the system tool.
(my printer is a 7065)

Then I'm going to try CUPS again.

I'm trying to switch to linux mint... new user

Tried to install network printer on my wired local network (Brother DCP-7065DN). It works well on Ubuntu 10.04 via cups.
I can pull up the printers web page on its IP address x.x.x.5

Using system printer tool to add printer gives that FirewallD message (so fast that it cannot be read).
Question 1) Do I have to install that FirewallD?
Tool says no printers found on local printers (correct)
Clicking on Network option shows the network DCP printer.
(Sometimes it shows 2 copies of the same printer - clicking on either identical name gives no info - it should show why there are two and differences)
Selecting one and clicking add button shows
ready
location: -
model: Brother DCP-7045N BR Script3
IP address: BRN001BA97F322D

Printing a test page ends with just processing staying on forever
------------------

Method 2
Using system tool, clicked search by address and putting in the IP address x.x.x.5 shows
ready
location: -
model: Brother DCP-7045N BR Script3
IP address: localhost (???)

Question 2) what is going on here with localhost?

Question 3)
I'm going to try CUPS again.
I've installed the cups drivers for 7065 and want to remove the 7045 (earlier #) driver.
how do I do that.
