Bug#489316: kdeprint: Unable to print from kcontrol

Package: kdeprint
Version: 4:3.5.9.dfsg.1-2+b1
Severity: normal

I'm unable to print test pages from kcontrol. I issue the print command from the printer's context menu and I get two popups:
The first (An information dialog) says "Test page successfully sent to printer Family."

The second is an error that pops up with:
"A print error occurred. Error message received from system:

cupsdoprint -P 'Family' -J 'KDE Print Test' -H '/var/run/cups/cups.sock:631'
 -U 'karen' -o ' multiple-document-handling=separate-documents-uncollated-copies orientation-requested=3'
 '/usr/share/apps/kdeprint/testprint.ps' : execution failed with message:"

I've not cut that early, no error message is actually given.

If I however copy that command to a terminal running as the same user, it succeeds and prints every time, suggesting something
is amiss with KDE's method if issuing the command. FWIW, I get teh same problem printing from KPDF, but that uses a temporary file,
not a static one like the test page, (and this temporary file never shows up), so I'm treating that as a seperate issue.
