Blacklisting usblp, as recommended by the CUPS 1.4 USB howto in this wiki article, actually caused CUPS to stop detecting my printers. Only by modprobe-ing it back in did printing start working. Could anyone confirm this result? If this is the case for multiple users then I think that the article should mention this. --[[User:CaptainHayashi|CaptainHayashi]] 17:19, 6 December 2009 (EST)

smb backend is included in cups so you may not installing samba to print to a windows shared printer


Performing Utility Functions on Epson Printers should be moved to appendix, as it's not related to troubleshooting.

This article needs to be cleaned up. Conversational style must be removed, i.e.: I,me,you,let's, etc..please avoid informal langauage in wiki articles. Thanks. --Misfit138 14:10, 21 October 2009 (EDT)

I don't want the article to be trashed; it just helped me set up two network printers. I'll try to work on it, though it will be a couple of weeks before I can start. I'm pretty new to Arch (which might not be a bad thing) but have read a number of the ArchWiki articles and have an idea of the style requirements.--Pawcatuck 20:31, 25 October 2009 (EDT)
The article is not queued for deletion. It just needs a change of tone. Pacmanz 12:38, 1 November 2009 (EST)
Great inforation in this article. It covers a lot and has helped me set up a simple Epson Stylus C64 printer on a network using the raw Jetdirect protocol. I spent quite some days lookin for answers and this is where I found them.--Daxwarf
Almost done; the heading cases aren't consistent. Since it has a troubleshooting section, it makes sense to use "This casing", but I thought I'd wait for everybody's opinion before doing that.
I left "you", removed "we,I,lets,my". In my opinion, Howto centric wikis are ok with "you", although I don't disagree with changing this. manolo 16:47, 8 November 2009 (EST)
Added section to end of Troubleshooting-Other "Finding URIs for Windows Print Servers" when I discovered in horror that Vista Home Basic doesn't display the printer's uri when you right click and select Properties.--Wriggary

Blacklisting usblp

Blacklisting usblp, as recommended by the CUPS 1.4 USB howto in this wiki article, actually caused CUPS 1.4.2 to stop detecting my printers. Only by modprobe-ing it back in did printing start working. Could anyone confirm this result? If this is the case for multiple users then I think that the article should mention this. --CaptainHayashi 17:19, 6 December 2009 (EST)
