I'm stuck with resolving my printer issue. Maybe someone here can help 
me out.

Long story: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=148474

Short version:  I reinstalled cups, removed all leftover files in /etc, 
/usr which wasn't owned any package. Samsung unified driver got replaced 
with splix-svn 307.
Now cups doesn't see my usb printer. On a laptop with clean cups install 
it works.

What interesting that the printer is recognized, lsusb, dmesg shows it. 
And usb backend called manually detects it, too:

|#  /usr/lib/cups/backend/usb
DEBUG: list_devices
DEBUG: libusb_get_device_list=10
DEBUG2: Printer found with device ID: MFG:Samsung;CMD:PCL5E,SPL,FWV,EXT;MDL:SCX-3200 Series;CLS:PRINTER;MODE:SCN;STATUS:BUSY; Device URI: usb://Samsung/SCX-3200%20Series?serial=Z509BFEB902638M&interface=1

Does someone have any clue? Of course I played with usblp module 
(removed, loaded), no avail.
