Difficulty when following INSTALL [arch linux]

I'm trying to get my 1018 working on an arch x86 install using cups. When following the INSTALL procedure I get no errors until I run

$ make cups
if [ -x /etc/init.d/cups ]; then \
/etc/init.d/cups restart; \
elif [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.cups ]; then \
/etc/rc.d/rc.cups restart; \
elif [ -x /etc/init.d/cupsys ]; then \
/etc/init.d/cupsys restart; \
elif [ -x /etc/init.d/cupsd ]; then \
/etc/init.d/cupsd restart; \
elif [ -x /usr/local/etc/rc.d/cups.sh ]; then \
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/cups.sh restart; \
elif [ -x /usr/local/etc/rc.d/cups.sh.sample ]; then \
cp /usr/local/etc/rc.d/cups.sh.sample /usr/local/etc/rc.d/cups.sh; \
/usr/local/etc/rc.d/cups.sh restart; \
fi

This is all that returns. I don't really understand how this command is supposed to work but i figure something must be wrong.

running

$ usb_printerid /dev/usb/lp1
GET_DEVICE_ID string:
MFG:Hewlett-Packard;MDL:HP LaserJet 1018;CMD:ACL;CLS:PRINTER;DES:HP LaserJet 1018;

also running the wrapper and cp-ing to /dev/usb/lp1 does not print a test page.

any ideas? thanks for the help

Did you do:
$ make
$ ./getweb 1018
$ su
# make install install-hotplug cups

power down and up the printer
???
