Bug#389565: kcontrol: Printers module does not have an option to change CUPS server

Package: kcontrol
Version: 4:3.5.4-2+b1
Severity: normal

*** Please type your report below this line *** In the KDE Control Center, under "Peripherals" then "Printers", I 
choose CUPS as my "Print system currently used". Default server is localhost:631. I wish to use an external CUPS

"System options" etc. " This was in fact helpful as via google I found I could use the kprinter program to change the 

To summarize: there should be an option to change the CUPS server.
