My Samsung printer stopped working. I tried to remove it from installed devices, but I'm unable to add it again since it isn't detected anymore. The problem seems CUPS related since the printer seems detected normally. These are the outputs from some commands:

tail -f /var/log/syslog:

  • Anyone could help please? thanks!! – makovz Feb 9 '16 at 12:28
  • According to feeding.cloud.geek.nz/posts/…, com.redhat.NewPrinterNotification is part of an obsolete package. It was probably renamed somewhere around Ubuntu 14. I'm still digging... – Isaac Betesh Dec 1 '16 at 16:22

This seems to be a bug that I have reported at https://github.com/zdohnal/system-config-printer/issues/48.

You can download an updated version of some of the relevant packages from https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/system-config-printer/1.5.7+20160812-0ubuntu1/+build/10606657. (Download the .deb files, and install them using sudo dpkg -i system-config-printer*.deb). However, upgrading didn't fix this for me, so I am waiting for a response to the bug report.
