Can you still use the http://localhost:631 interface to CUPS?

There is a known issue with KDE 3.5.5 printer management and CUPS: It
only works if cupsd listens to /var/run/cups/cups.sock. Check your

$ grep Listen /etc/cups/cupsd.conf
Listen localhost:631
Listen /var/run/cups/cups.sock

The current default cupsd.conf is OK in that respect, but some people,
myself included, had previously commented out the cups.sock line since
it used to break printing with KDE 3.5.4. Once I uncommented this line
and restarted cupsys everything was working again. Maybe this is also
the root of your problem; your symptoms do sound similar to mine.
