I'm only really familier with SuSE 8.2, so, this might not be in your version.

Open up Yast2 (should be in your menu). Go into the hardware section, and then into the printers module. From there, SuSE should automatically do a search for printers connected to your system, and when it finds it, it should show you what it's found and give you the opportunity to change it.

If you're printer is not detected, ensure the usb cable is plugged in correctly, and make sure you have 'hotplug' installed, if your not sure, go into Yast2 and into your Add/Remove software section and do a search for it. This is nessesary to pick up usb devices connected to your system.

I have had very good success rate with setting up printers in SuSE, it usually requires no extra configuration at all.
