Or, like, just type "sudo kill -HUP cupsd" in the Terminal. ;)

For me (under Tiger) I have to state the PID of the cups daemon instead of 'cupsd' - e.g.:

sudo kill -HUP 250

And BTW: whoever posted the original hint (along with Apple) wasn't so smart to not remark that this will delete your printer from the list - for people with complex configs and non-standard drivers this is a MAJOR pain.

rogb: it would have also been nice if you had noted this as well in your remark.

Thanks, that command did the trick for me. I had problems getting my new Epson D68 recognised as somehow my Printer Sharing in the Sharing preferences wasn't functioning.
