Printer fails to work after upgrade to 5.3

I have a Cannon S520 printer that I had working under 5.2.1 using cups with
KDE as a graphical interface. After upgrading I have not been able to get it
I get no error messages when I send a document to print. Even test prints
bring back a message stating the test print was successfull, however the
printer does not respond.
I double checked my packages in case I deleted any. Ghostscrip-gnu-nox11 is
still installed as well as cups. I still have a symbolic link from
cups.sh.sample to cups.sh in the ~/etc/rc.d directory.
The /etc/make.conf file still has CUPS_OVERWRITE_BASE=yes and NO_LPR=yes in
it. The corresponding lp commands in /usr/bin are symbolicly linked to their
counterparts in /usr/local/bin/lp.
Is there something basic that I have missed or a change which needs to be
added? I have created the libmap.conf file to adjust the different threading
libraries. What would I need to do to try to get an error message via the
command line? I'm a newbie, when I first set up the printer under 5.2.1, I
followed some basic set up instructions and the KDE graphical interface took
right off without problems. So I never really learned anything. :-)
Any assistance will be appreciated!
