I've had problems printing in SuSE 9.0 Professional too. I usually have
to go into "KJobViewer" and delete the print job, unplug the printer USB
cable, go into Yast and remove the printer, plug the USB cable back in,
reinstall the printer in Yast and start the print job again. This
rediculous procedure takes time and is annoying. The printer
(Samsung ML1210 ) works perfectly in Windows. And it starts out perfectly
in SuSE too, but stops after three or four print jobs. Reinstalling SuSE
Linux from scratch doesn't help. Something is broken.
