: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.--[[User:Pawcatuck|Pawcatuck]] 20:31, 25 October 2009 (EDT)
::The article is not queued for deletion. It just needs a change of tone. [[User:Pacmanz|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.--[[User:Daxwarf|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. [[User:Manolo|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.--[[User:Wriggary|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. --[[User:CaptainHayashi|CaptainHayashi]] 17:19, 6 December 2009 (EST)
