It looks like the original exchange happened on debian-user, and then someone 
said "you might want to ask debian-kde" and then tacked debian-kde on as a 

Either that or I'm missing posts.  My first message in this thread is a reply.

And while we're on this topic anyway, I've found that I *don't* actually like 
the KDE printer installer wizard flummy.  I can't quite remember specific 
details about what it couldn't do with it, but it was missing some critical 
piece to getting an HP inkjet to work on an Ubuntu system.  Ubuntu's CUPS web 
interface is hacked because they deem it too dangerous.  I didn't manage to 
get where I needed to be with either the KDE configurator or the suggested 
GNOME configurator, so I had to spend an afternoon de-hacking the CUPS thing 
so I could spend twelve and a half seconds configuring the bliffin' printer 
already.  That's why this is sticking in my memory.
