Re-enable a network printer after a failure

Open a terminal and

lpstat -p

look for a line something like this:

printer your-printer-name disabled since Mon 16 Dec 2013 10:37:59 AM CST –
/usr/lib/cups/backend/hp failed

to get the name of your printer. Then enter:

sudo cupsenable your-printer-name
