there is a new proposed  tool for adding new printers and configuring
existing ones. It is
the python/gtk app that is used in FC6. It is in universe currently
but if feedback is good
it should get in main and on the CD

$apt-get install system-config-printer

please discuss issues with it here but file bugs in LP if you find some.

You need to update to the latest foomatic-db in edgy as well, the
previous versions have a corrupt printer description file in the
database which crashes this tool.
