Can't remember if I rsponded to your original post but the doc I use
Even though it is geared to networking, I used it to get a USB connected printer
working.  I've used it also to set up both printservers and clients.
In my limited experience of setting up printers under Linux, I've never
managed to do it using KDE print manager.  I always use cups.

connecting to http://localhost:631 will ask you to login.  You can either login
as root or add yourself to the group lpadmin and login as you.

Good luck.
