     "Suse does not deliver the KDE print manager"

Martin, I can't believe this. I do not think SUSE goes to the length of amputating a part of kdelibs out of the framework.

Try "print:/administration" in Konqueror. What you now see *IS* the KDE print manager. (You may want to rightclick on the window background to set a few view options that show you more stuff... Right-clicking on items such as printers, or jobs listed as completed is also a good idea.)

You should also be able to start "kcmshell printers".

But I agree: it should be much more obvious to users where to find the KDE-knob that re-enables CUPS-printing. As can be seen from mailing lists and user forums, it happens far too often that a computer is booten when the USB printer is switched off, and Dang!, CUPS auto-disables the printqueue to that printer because it thinks it's gone...
