Does the freeze also happen, if you start "kprinter" via the "[alt]+[f2]" shortcut?
Please post the content of the following commands:
grep -i ServerName ~/.cupsrc
grep -i ServerName ~/.cups/client.conf
grep -i ServerName /etc/cups/client.conf
cat $(kde-config --localprefix)/share/config/kdeprintrc
cat $(kde-config --localprefix)/share/config/kprinterrc
Last, run this command from a konsole to get a log of which files your kprinter tries to open:
strace -eopen kprinter | tee ~/kprinter.freeze.log
It will allow you to
a) watch the output inside the console and also see the last few lines before
b) look at the file ~/kprinter.freeze.log later and search for a reason that
may cause the freeze
Actually, how long have you waited for the longest time so far, before you decided it is a freeze that will last forever? Maybe it is just some timeout that is set to an insane level, somewhere?
What you also could try: create a completely new user on your system, start KDE as that user, and see if the print system also freezes for that user....
