Hi all,

I could not print to my USB epson printer anymore apparently after a recent 
upgrade. After much googling & research the answer is ...

vi /etc/cups/cupsd.conf

right at the bottom of the config file change ...

# Unknown
configfileperm 0600
runasuser Yes
include cupsd-browsing.conf

to ...

# Unknown
configfileperm 0600
#runasuser Yes
include cupsd-browsing.conf

/etc/init.d/cuysys restart

and hey presto it works.

Thought this might be usefull in case anyone else got caught :)
