Hi Sid; Cups working fine for me on openSUSE 11.2 & 11.3-M6. Hardware is
Studio 1745 laptop with Brother HL-1440 connected via USB to parallel cable.

root@laptop= /home/tom # lpq
brotherhl1440series is ready
no entries
root@laptop= /home/tom # lpc status
printer is on device 'usb' speed -1
queuing is enabled
printing is enabled
no entries
daemon present
root@laptop= /home/tom #

How did you install your printer, through Yast2 or from cli?

73s! Tom

Should have added: Did you check Yast2 > > Services to see if cups daemon
to run at startup?

I used YaST2 to set up my printers. I never had to do that until
Milestone 5.
Using YaST2 --> Services only does one thing and is equivalent to
"chkconfig cups on". Either way it's enabled, but does not start
automatically as it should.
I have now edited /etc/sysconfig/cups and added options shown below.

Shown below what? :-))

CUPSD_OPTIONS="" changed to CUPSD_OPTIONS="-C /etc/cups/cupsd.conf".

shall see if that fixes it on the next reboot.
slipstream:~ # ps fax|grep cups
10150 pts/2 S+ 0:00 | \_ grep cups
25058 ? Ss 0:00 /usr/sbin/cupsd -C /etc/cups/cupsd.conf
