I posted on a similar issue and I do not think it is CUPS related.
I have an HP deskjet on USB which worked perfectly on 8.2. I recently
upgraded to 9.0 and now have an identical problem. The printer is still
working: I have tested it using the script from the SuSE database regarding
USB printers - it prints "hello".
CUPS did not appear to be installed properly (various configuration scripts
report "Yast2..." rather than greyscale etc) but I was unable to change
Accordingly I changed to LPRing with no effect.
An earlier post on this topic suggested changing permissions on usb0 (I used
chmod 666) but to no effect.
The person who recommended I use Linux, SuSE in particular, is successfully
running 9.0 on the same hardware (same gigabyte motherboard, athlon etc) but
using a parallel port HP deskjet.
Although I am not an expert, I am speculating that the issue is related to
configuration scripts, permissions or similar connecting everything together.
This seems to relate to an installation issue arising from the way SuSE has
put everything together in relation to USB and kde/kprinter (Though SuSE
support has not been forthcoming).
If anyone could offer some suggestions I would be grateful.
