Have you gone trough any additional steps to set it up? I.e running the cups or kde-printing setup wizards?

Hi 5mattyb5,

I had the same issue, but after updating foomatic-filter and foomatic-filters-ppds to the new version that stays in Entropy it all works perfect.

I hope that'll help you...

I used the kde setup and the gnome setup, I haven't tried the cups setup
