As suggested by the Arch wiki, I used the
# HostNameLookups Double
option. However, that resulted in following error message: IP lookup failed - connection from localhost closed!
and I wasn't able to add printers via the CUPS web interface (internal server error)
It seems there is an outstanding bug with respect to the HostNameLookups: http://www.cups.org/str.php?L4070+Qversion:%20-feature
Device node permissions
I got a problem after update of/ and foomatic. My printer not working anymore.
So I first check possible problems and read section Device node permissions. It's recommended to verify that permissions are 660. It was my case so I am looking to find another solution.
After a long time and read I was back to this section. I read also section below Device node permission troubleshooting. As my conf was with well permission I don't really read all carefully. It was the 3rd/4th time before I see the note about 666 permissions. I tried this and it's solved my problem.
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.
GNOME Printing Workflow
In my test, GNOME 3.8.1 print workflow no longer requires to install. It should be removed from this wiki, also i am not sure if lpadmin is required either.
The link to "ufr2", which points to the AUR, is dead.
Is there an up to date link?

- Isn't the listed AUR the same? The description says "Canon UFR II / LIPSLX Printer Driver for Linux with support for LBP/iR/MF printers".

Unknown option "i"
In the section Command-line configuration under "Add a new printer" it says, "The device can be retrieved from the 'lpinfo -i' command." When I run that command I get, 'lpinfo: Unknown option "i"'. -- fsckd (talk) 16:28, 30 September 2013 (UTC)
