I recently installed OpenSuse 11, KDE 3.5, onto my desktop, and it is working, but the printer does not print. I can access the control panel and set it up, but it prints out 5 pages of nothing when I ask it to print a test page. I can not use the CUPS set up via internet as it does not recognize my password.
I have deleted it and went in manually and changed the driver to the exact driver, but it did not work either. It did the same thing and printed out blank pages. Also, my printer is pushing out twice the amount of heat I get from Kubuntu or Windows.
Also, it did not remember the driver that I had picked for it after I had picked it out and went back to check it. It reverted to the old driver again. I did hit next and finish, and it did say it saved it.
Thanks to anyone who can get the printer to work and to cool down,

I was able to get the printer working through CUPS Manage Printing under Utilities and Printing. My mistake in not being able to set it up using CUPS before was it was asking for my root username, and password, not my home username and password. Although I was using my sudo or root password, I did not use root as the username. I thought I would share my gaffe, in the hopes it could help some other newbie.
