Public bug reported:

Affects: gnome-cups-manager (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed

I am using the Ubuntu 6.06 Beta Live CD.  On it, I went to "System",
then "Administration", then "Printing".  I, then, double-clicked "New
Printer".  On Step 1 of the "Add a printer" dialog ("Printer
Connection"), I chose "Local Printer" for the printer type and "Use
detected printer" and selected my printer model which is a Canon S600.
Then, I clicked the "Forward" button.  On Step 2 of the "Add a printer"
dialog ("Printer Driver"), I chose the manufacturer "Canon", model
"S600", driver "bj8pa06n.upp", and then I clicked the "Apply" button.
My printer never shows up in the "Printers" window, even after waiting
several minutes.  I also, don't see any CPU activity under "System
Monitor" other than that used by the system monitor itself and of X.org.
