Use Print Center Repair to fix troublesome printers Apps
I have a Lexmark Z53 Printer that has never quite worked right under OS 10.x. I found a great utility that fixes many problems with a verity of OS 10 compatible printers: Print Center Repair.

[Editor's note: I haven't used this utility myself, but I thought it was worth a mention here if you're having printer problems. Based on the web site, it seems to cover many of the issues that cause printing problems. As you could clearly do everything this program does by yourself using the Terminal, you'll have to decide if the convenience of a nice GUI and not having to tweak hundreds of files by hand is worth the $10.00 shareware fee.]

I've used Print Center Repair since the bad old days of OS 10.1.3. (Fortunately, I've needed it a lot less under 10.2.) When you can't print, it's a lifesaver. Three advantages this has over the D.I.Y approach: (1) PCR is the result of the author's research into the many quirks of the Print Center, so it presents the steps to repair the Print Center in logical order; you start with the easy fixes and progress to the neutron bomb approach only if the lesser cures don't work; (2) the author himself is a tremendous resource for help in fixing printing problems in OS X; e-mail him with a problem that PCR can't fix, and he'll try to help you out; and (3) the utility is not nagware or crippledware; it's true shareware -- try it for free -- if it works, pay the modest shareware fee; you have nothing to lose.
