Do you have CUPS installed?  Unlike pretty much every linux distro I've used, the default Manjaro doesn't have it.  So:
pamac install cups

Then you've got to start it up:

sudo systemctl enable --now cups.service
sudo systemctl enable --now cups.socket
sudo systemctl enable --now cups.path
Point a web browser to localhost:631 and you'll get a clunky but serviceable web-based printer management interface.

Is your printer directly connected or network?  Setting up a generic printer (just choose Generic for the type) seemed to work pretty well for me.

I think this post should be in the Wiki.

Anyone tried system-config-printer?
