Bug#471236: Setting up printers does not provide them to any other apps

Package: kcontrol
Version: 4:3.5.8.dfsg.1-7

I used the printers module to set up my remote CUPS printer. It's now
shown consistenly in the KDE control center, and I can print test pages
from it ... but it doesn't show up in any other applications!!

The three applications I want to print from are Evolution, Iceweasel and
OpenOffice.org. None of them seems aware of any of the printers set up
in the KDE Control Center. Is this WAD?


N.B. I think bug #389565 can be closed now as the CUPS Server settings
are now accessible in the KDE Print Configuration dialog (Peripherals ->
Printers -> Print Manager -> Configure Manager).
