[SOLVED] KDE based Arch won't upgrade due to printer configuration

Hi,
I'm on a KDE/Arch_X86-64 system.
During the last system upgrade (pacman -Syu), I got the following errors (which remained even after stopping the cups daemon).

Please advise.
Thanks!

----------error message-------

Re: [SOLVED] KDE based Arch won't upgrade due to printer configuration

I checked they were not owned and moved them aside to a safe place - just in case. They correspond to *.py equivalents, I think, *.pyc being the compiled version.

On the other hand, plasma went nuts though I don't honestly think that was connected and it seems OK now.

Yes, I think what you did is the right way to upgrade. See my post in this thread, it's the same problem:

Re: [SOLVED] KDE based Arch won't upgrade due to printer configuration

Thanks for confirmation. I take it the way I suggested is equally good but somewhat less efficient because it involves more work.
