My two WiFi printers show up but are listed as "Disabled". I cannot find any way to enable them. Any suggestions? They work perfectly on my Linux Mint laptop.

I had the same issue with my WiFi Epson XP332. This is a wrong configured and delivered CUPS-problem. I solved it by changing the cups authorization in /etc/cups/cupsd.conf. I changed the most the settings to "order allow,deny". Then you sholud be able to activate the printer in the settings menu or with usr/sbin/cupsenable PRINTERNAME. Maybe possible that you must reload the CUPS-daemon.

I think is a very huge bug. eOS is told to be user-friendly, so the printing must work out of the box. You cannot annoy new users with such a bitchy printer behaviour.
