You can also use http://localhost:631/.

The problems seem to be that /etc/cups/printers.conf do not exits, or is 
empty. It will be created/updated when adding a driver with an other tool.

If I add a printer with http://localhost:631/ I can connect to the cups server 
but if I remove it again it does not work anymore.

Cups prints a lot of
E [24/Mar/2006:15:52:50 +0100] CUPS-Get-Printers client-error-not-found: No 
destinations added.
messages in the error log when trying to access cups from kdeprint when no 
printer exists. But seems to work fine when one driver exits. It even stops 
working if I remove the single existing driver from kdeprint, after that it 
is not possible to access cups.
