The new cups ports seem to not recognize or I don't know how to configure usb printers.

I haven't had a problem like this with cups in years. I updated cups  
yesterday and can no longer print, install, reinstall usb printers. In  
admin/add a printer I have no local options only:

Other Network Printers: 	Internet Printing Protocol (http)
                                 Internet Printing Protocol (ipp)
                                 LPD/LPR Host or Printer
                                 AppSocket/HP JetDirect

No input for discription, location, etc.  The usb printers are  
recognized when connected or disconnected by the kernel.

I am seeing this on both up to date current and 7.2 Stable.  I am  
going through the documentation hoping to find the problem.  If not,  
what is the best way to go back to the previous port?
