    Printer help!

    Hi
    I have in a long time used my printers without any problems (epson and brother), but suddenly ubuntu does not link to them- I do not understand what I have done. It is probably due to an update, but anyhow, I have tried numerous guides to get it to work. And every time I go into default printer says: "CUPS scheduler not running". Then I restart / start my cups, and then cups runs until next time I reboot. But I still can not print. And I have installed Foomatic. What happened?
    Can anyone help me or know how to reset all printer settings, so I just through cups can add new printer, and hopefully get it to work?
    Hope there are some who has some suggestions.

    Mvh. Joe

    I have already done that, and it shows my printers, but they still doesn't work. I get the error: "/usr/lib/cups/filter/foomatic-rip failed"
