Yes, you can indeed copy the lot from a machine running 10.6.7. However, if you take a look in the backend folder not all the files located in the backend folder are real files.. some are aliases. I wouldn´t mess with the aliases. I guess most have seen my fix suggestion posted at the Xerox and Fiery forums.
Direct link here:
A point to make is that I´m addressing the bug concerning network printing.. not to a locally connected printer ( we don´t have any here ). BTW, the links in the backend folder .. if the files they points to are messed up then the real files have to be replaced to and the links refreshed to the new files.
I imagine many will have aliases to the "canonijnetwork", "HP-fax" and the "fax" files .. all of these are located outside of the backend folder. I repeat, don´t mess with these aliases. You might discover that some aliases are named differently than what the files they point to are. Example: HP-fax links to a file named HPFaxBackend inside the library/printers/hp hierarchy.
Copying by means of ARD is quick and safe.. as long as you know what you copy, to where and why.. :-)
You could of course use Apple´s installer builder app in order to build the fix into an actual installer app but for most workplaces using ARD is much faster. I imagine many will have aliases to the "canonijnetwork", "HP-fax" and the "fax" files located outside of the backend folder.

The files are system files, so are hidden from everyday view. Open a Finder window, and under 'Go' you should select 'Go to Folder'. Simply type in '/usr/libexec/cups/backend' and that will navigate to the backend folder.

find this one cnet and this is a much easier solution for those not so family with os x
Was solved with this: http://www.geocities.jp/horiemonmail/Repair10.6.8.dmg
Don't know exactly, what it does. Kind of replacing the lpd File.
Found the solution here: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3137602?start=135&tstart=0

Garlun i didn't use the DMG file and it worked with the CNET process.
Docucolor 252 printing just fine
Reinstall as LPD not as Bonjour. Now im upgrading getting ready to Mac OS X Lion.
Just in case suscribe to @xeroxsupport and @mac_fix_it they offer a faster solution than MAC
Host dont you edit this, its lifesaver info.

Your solution worked !!
It was quite some searching and tedious work to do, though eventually it did work out.
Brilliant, thank you very much.
We are up and running again, even with the upgrade 10.6.8 and ready for the Lion.

This worked for me. I have a Xerox Color 550 and was getting the same problem, pausing printer. Wierdly it did not start when I installed the 10.6.8 update but a week later. All good now after the patch.

Alejandro, your problem doesn't look like the same issue being discussed in this thread. You may want to search another thread or simply start a new thread. You should also look for crash log of rastertoescpII, and post it.

I updated to 10.6.8 and then I was not able to print. The error seems different:
/Library/Printers/EPSON/InkjetPrinter2/Filter/rastertoescpII.app/Contents/MacOS/ rastertoescpII failed
But still I think it belongs to this thread. Am I wrong?
