Printers Not Listed by YaST

The fact that the printer is not listed does not necessarily mean that it is not going to work. If the printer is a new one from one of the major vendors such as HP or Epson, there's actually a very good chance that it is a variant of one of the printers that is listed by YaST, but is a slightly changed model that has come on the market recently. So the best strategy is to select the closest model that you can find manually. Then try printing a test page and see what happens. In many cases this will work fine. The information about your printer at www.linux-foundation.org/en/OpenPrinting may help with this process.
