Reset cups?

I wanted to know if there was a way to completely reset CUPS. Would I just uninstall it? I’ve never been able to print to my brother printer and I fear that I messed something up and I want to start from the beginning.

Any help would be appreciated!

I would rename /etc/cups and then re-install it.

sudo mv /etc/cups ~/cups
sudo pacman -S cups

This will put a copy of the old cups config in your home directory in case you need to look at it or there is something important there. Once everything is working you can delete the extra copy.

Thank you for this, whether or not this helped or I was finally able to pick the correct settings for my printer… it’s working now.
