Is libcups really sufficient as a client package?
I can't seem to be able to print in KDE applications (4.9.97) if I only haveinstalled:
Could not print the document. Detailed error is "Could not find a suitable binary for printing. Make sure CUPS lpr binary is available"
Foomatic not providing drivers?
I don't know if this is a general-enough problem to be put on the wiki, but I was unable to print using my Konica-Minolta PagePro 1350w because the driver was not installed with foomatic. I installed foomatic-db, foomatic-db-engine, and foomatic-filters, and used the CUPS web interface to add the printer and select the recommended min12xxw driver. I was unable to print, and only got uninformative error messages in the logs like "Filter error". The Gnome printer dialog, however, said it was unable to find the driver, so I tried installing it from AUR (https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/min12xxw/), after which I was able to print. Why was the driver listed in the CUPS web management interface, but not actually installed? Maybe a note on the wiki will help future users.
For reference, last edit before the rewrite: 
Also, the current article structure needs serious improvements. How do you mention what drivers are to install -after- installing a printer? The old structure had this right at the beginning, after installing the server/client packages. -- Alad (talk) 16:34, 28 October 2015 (UTC)
- Should be better after the last set of edits. Much of the writing still needs improvement, though. -- Alad (talk) 13:29, 29 October 2015 (UTC)

- ErrorPolicy: ?
- I've copied the ErrorPolicy section back into CUPS/Troubleshooting, see . I think that might be all the lost content returned? -- Pypi (talk) 07:41, 23 February 2016 (UTC)
How many times do I have to do this? Either something is missing from these instructions, or there is a very serious bug in cups. Pretty much every time I try to print something (a few times a month), I have to start from scratch, delete all printers, uninstall cups, etc.
