I'm using ubuntu 12.04 and opeerp 7.0-20130828-231133. I have created a simple module, added data, clicked on the form view only edit, create, more buttons appeared, shouldn't there be a print button as well?

Nope, you have to add at least a report to your new module to enable it.

For example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <report id="sale.report_sale_order"
            string="Quotation - Order"

This automatically adds a link on the Print Menu. It's based on the model.

After creating a report module how should I go enabling the report button. Should I include that in the xml of the report?

I've updated my answer, It depends on which type of report you want to use, but basically this is the way.
