I can do the bug report, and do modifications in the 
system-config-printer package (*.desktop files), but I am not able to 
add a button to the GNOME printer setup tool.

So please tell me:

1. On which packages should I report the UIFe bug?

2. Which *.desktop files in s-c-p should I change in which way?

Where is documentation for a UIFe?
