Should be easier than that.  Just install your printer using kprinter. 

$ kprinter &
or for a global installation
$ kdesu kprinter &

Works a lot like the windows printer utility except this one is more

I prefer configuring printers with the cups browser interface
(http://localhost:631), but K[U]buntu disables it by default.  If you
have used it before, and like it, I can post instructions on re-enabling it.
