Description of problem:
Functionality required to set up printer sharing using the
system-config-printer tools are only available in the GUI component.
This is a problem for a number of reasons.
1. Most systems, sharing printers are servers and server mostly
doesn't even have X installed. Installing X just to get this
functionality would be a shame.
2. Things are even worse because it seems impossible (pardon my
posible ignorance) to modify the created configuration files to
share whatever printer i want to share. And then have those
manually added configuration settings kept across invocations of
the system-config-printer tools. (or across printer system rpm
updates, which seems to toss those things away as well)
This functionality is badly needed in the system-config-printer-tui
component for reasons laid out above.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. From a console launcs system-config-printer-tui
2. Try to set up a printer available to other machines on the network
Actual Results: Not possible
Expected Results: Should be possible
