[Solved] Searching for drivers hangs when adding printer:
I had problems when trying to add my Canon 5250 to the 0.8.12 Manjaro release.
The system would lock up on searching for printers.
Followed this proceedure, with a slight modification:
sudo systemctl stop org.cups.cupsd.service
sudo systemctl disable org.cups.cupsd.service
sudo pacman -Rsn manjaro-printer
sudo pacman -S cups cups-pdf cups-pk-helper system-config-printer
Installed the canon-pixma-mg5200-complete package from AUR using package manager
sudo systemctl daemon-reload
sudo systemctl enable org.cups.cupsd.service
sudo systemctl start org.cups.cupsd.service
When I installed the AUR package, the computer rebooted (?) but I just carried on and it all worked
The driver also seemed to install the Canon Scanger application as well.
