I understand there is a slight overhead from bringing in a couple gnome-libs
(though I think it is only about 3 and they don't seem to weigh heavy on my
system unless I am using the application) but I recommend the use of gnome's
cups manager, adding printers (networked or otherwise) has been so much
easier since I installed and started using that application on my xubuntu
machine at work.
.... just a thought.
