[Bug 80798] Re: Confinguration of Network-based printer unclear

This is solved by both CUPS 1.2 (with its SNMP backend which scans for
network printers) and by printerdrake, the planned replacement of the
gnome-cups-manager (providing a GUI frontend for the SNMP backend).

Problem of Ubuntu here is that the SNMP backend is deactivated by
default (by putting it into /usr/lib/cups/backend-available/). My
suggestion is to make it active for Feisty. The scan takes only 3-4 sec
and is very useful, especially for unexperienced users.
