Bug Description

I did a fresh install of Kubuntu Gutsy, with two printers attached: HP-DJ-3320 (usb) and Samsung ML-1740 (parallel). I could install both and print without problem until a few days ago. Now, ML-1740 does not show up anymore, and in KDEprint adding local printer is grayed out. Help please!

I tried connecting it via USB, but no luck either. Neither with sudo aa-complain cupsd
Thanks for any help!

No help available? The problem is the last cupsys update. I deleted cupsys, -client, -bsd, -common (version 1.3.2-1ubuntu7.1_i386.deb), and reinstalled the previous version (1.3.2-1ubuntu7_i386.deb). After doing that, the printer was available again.
