Hi,

 

Please answer few questions to narrow down the issue,

 

1. What happens when you print?

2. Do you get any error messages?

3. Is MakerBot Replicator 2 getting recognized in Devices and Printers? What happens when you connect the device to the computer?

 

I would suggest you to refer this article for more information.

Did you every work out why?  I have the same issue, the 2X installs as a 2 and the print spooler just shows 'Error - Printing'

Cheers,

My guess would be that MakerBot wrote a variant of the Sailfish firmware for the dual-extruder Replicator2X (as opposed to the standard Replicator2); it's probably rare enough and seemingly related enough to have escaped the team's notice.
