Description of problem:
When usb printer is connected it doesn't get recognized as default printer - gnome-default-printer has no listing of a printer. The printer is however recognized and configured by system-config-printer and there is an entry for it in printers.conf. This printer is Cannon BJC-85 and used to work fine under FC3.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Plug usb printer
2. Open a printable file
3. Try to print
Actual Results: Nothing happens
Expected Results: Printer should print the file
I am not sure if it is a gnome-printing problem or udev/hotplug related
