10.6: Fix some Kyocera printers in Snow Leopard Printers
Adding Kyocera printers connected via network (IPP) will cause a Printer paused status as soon as the first job is queued in Snow Leopard.

Reinstalling the drivers for 10.5, changing the owner:group of /usr/libexec/cups/filter/kyofilter to root:wheel, and choosing LPD in the Printer setup dialog will fix this problem.

This is also needed when adding some Fiery based printers, e.g. Oce. However, you might need to alter the owner of /usr/libecex/cups/filter/fierycupsfilter to root:wheel

Kyocera have posted 10.6 drivers - here is the one I downloaded; http://www.kyocerasupport.co.uk/index/download_center.false.driver.TASKALFA250CI._.EN.html

There was an error unzipping the file, but it was only a graphic on the installer and the driver worked first time.
