Description Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams 2005-01-03 00:57:21 EST
When creating a queue in system-config-printer it doesn't parse
/usr/lib/cups/backend/* for what backends are available. Instead it
just blithely assumes that "Locally-connected", "Networked CUPS
(IPP)", "Networked UNIX (LPD)", "Networked Windows (SMB)", "Networked
Novell (NCP)", and "Networked JetDirect" are the only options, and are
always available. This causes an issue if additional backends such as
CUPS-PDF are installed because s-c-p completely ignores the additional

This is as designed.  Printconf needs throwing out and redoing from scratch IMHO.
