Hi Vladimir,

could you turn on debugging in cupsd.conf (by setting "LogLevel debug" in /etc/cups/cupsd.conf and restarting cups service) and try to add the printer again? Could you attach resulting /var/log/cups/error_log here? (Don't forget to restore old setting back after that since it produces quite a lot of messages)

Does gnome-control-center prints a warning to console when you are adding the printer?

Do you have the printer connected over network or through USB?
