KPrinter broken by KDE upgrade? (3.3.2 level "a")


Upgraded my SuSE 9.1 as suggested in the sticky thread at the beginning of this forum. Printed once from Konqeror but could not print from apps (OO & Kate). Ran YAST to reconfigure queue and then could not even do that! But the test page prints (the complex looking lpr command is shown.. maybe I could use that instead of KPrinter?). So CUPS seems to be O.K.
So is it KPrinter? Is there a way around this? Or a way back(to the old KDE whatever it was)?
What is going on?

I am using kprinter with SUSE 9.1 and KDE 3.3.2 quite happily

Try to check the logs in /var/log/cups

AFAIK, OO has its own printing interface, thus doesn't use kprinter. Not sure about kate.

Good suggestion abiskoOO. I did not see any clear error messages in the error log (but is is quite complex). Seeing you are OK with 3.3.2 I tried another printer (also via the network) which works OK.
I re-installed the offending printer, but it still does nothing (though it works for other machines on the network). I just don't know why it suddenly stopped responding (and works with the test page- I see a new printer is installed for the test..).
Thanks
