Description of problem:
If the end user creates a printer that is accessed VIA SMB, the printer is in

Unknown, could be unique to one system.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click Desktop->System Settings->Printing
2. Select New
3. Enter the printer name; Next!
4. Select SMB
5. Specify the Connection information
6. Attempt to print a test page.
There was a problem sending CUPS test page
to 'Laserjet1150' queue:

If one adds the printer via http://localhost:631/ [Cups Web admin] it is successful
Please attach the output of 'printconf-tui --Xexport' at that point, taking care
to replace any passwords it may contain with *s.

it was successful. The printer now shows up in CUPS config, and in the GNOME
