    Here's it is verbatim: "An error occurred while trying to add the selected printer Error:-50"

    Yes.., I've monkeyed with the files suggested by HP, et. al. Things are greyed out when using Printer Setup Utility that weren't before.

    update--> My printers.conf and classes.conf are missing, message: "no such file." They weren't even in the cups directory as expected. I guess I either have to reinstall CUPS, or clear out the printer system manually in root? Anyone?

    update--> These two files are erased by Printer Reset. They are generated by cupsd. You can either use previous copies to restore your printer lists, or in my case reinstall cups. "Rebuild your list by toggling print sharing in System Preferences sheet." I can now add other printers, but still get error -50 I believe due to: "bad line from USB" from my HP printer.

    What is causing this bad line?

    I have the same problem with Error 50 and I can't seem to solve it.

    I've checked out "system preferences" but I can't find a print sharing window or menu.
    But I have reset my printing system.

    Any further tips on dealing with Error 50?

    Thanks so much for any further instruction.
