I booted my Cube and there was a big, black X over my USB HP 932C Deskjet printer. I trashed the desktop printer icon and now the chooser won't create a new desktop printer for the Deskjet.

I have removed and reinstalled the Deskjet driver software twice, trashed finder and mac os prefs, trashed system prefs and zapped the PRAM. Nothing has helped.

The chooser will still create desktop printers for other types of printers (LW8 PSPrinter), and I can still use my Deskjet after I have selected it in the Chooser, but no desktop printer is created.

What gives?

Desktop Printer Manager
Desktop Printer Spooler
Desktop PrintMonitor

Make sure they're intact, as well as the Desktop Printer drivers for the printer itself, if it needs them.

Perhaps reinstall the Desktop Printers component of the OS?
