/var/log/messages shows errors like:
hpcups: prnt/hpcups/HPCupsFilter.cpp 366: DEBUG: Bad PPD - hpPrinterLanguage not found
and at the same time there's an error in /var/log/cups/error.log:
printer foobar is idle. enabled since Wed Oct 16 12:00:02 2011
The printerconfiguration wasn't updated and the configuration files still point to the old version 3.9 of the driver.
Solution is to run YaST2 and reconfigure all affected printers.
The errormessage in /var/log/cups/error.log tells which printers have to be reconfigured.
In some cases it's necessary to use driver hpijs instead of hpcups.
