With KDE 4.6.95, I get a message stating:
"The service Printer Configuration does not provide an interface
Then it goes on:
"Possible Reasons: An error occurred in your last KDE upgrade, leaving
an orphaned control model..."
I know it was working only 2-3 weeks ago, when I last printed a page.
The printer applet correctly detected my printer and all went
However, printing has always been very, very slow, say, 5-10 minutes
for one page. This has been a KDE problem for at least a year or two.
Running "python /usr/share/kde4/apps/system-config-printer-kde/system-config-

ImportError: No module named ppdippstr
The only ppdippstr(.py) I could found is in system-config-
there are the following lines:
#load modules from system-config-printer-common (debug, smburi), change path
here if you have it installed elsewhere
SYSTEM_CONFIG_PRINTER_DIR = "/usr/share/kde4/apps/system-config-printer"
if os.path.exists(SYSTEM_CONFIG_PRINTER_DIR + "/debug.py"):
debug.py is also in "/usr/share/system-config-printer/"
I've tried to change the variable SYSTEM_CONFIG_PRINTER_DIR to
"/usr/share/system-config-printer/" but that didn't do the trick ;-(
May be someone else has some better ideas.
