There is a beautiful new print test page that appeared about a month ago for the new release of Ubuntu 12.04. It looks very classy and offers more benefits. The new design uses a lot less ink and even offers printer info such as printer, PPD driver used, and media limit size. The photo above is from an old HP printer I just hooked up. Ubuntu found it immediately and now I need to run the printer alignment tool thats part of the HPLIP toolbox found in the Ubuntu Software Center.
