Description tju 2009-11-12 20:04:36 UTC
I try to add a new network printer via systemsettings/Computer Administration/Printer Configuration/New Printer/New Network Printer. I am selecting connection "Other", entering the device URI, press button "Forward" and a dialog appears with the correct prnter name, description and location. But if I press "OK" the dialog and systemsettings crashes.

Starting systemsettings from a konsole i got these:

toj@jogi ~ $ systemsettings
toj@jogi ~ $ Caught non-fatal exception.  Traceback:
File "/usr/share/apps/system-config-printer-kde/system-config-printer-kde.py", line 2297, in getPPDs_thread

    makes = self.ppds.getMakes()

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start kde systemsettings
2. select printer configuration
3. try to add a new network printer

Actual Results:  
crash of systemsettings

Expected Results:  
usable printer configuration

What happens with kde-4.3.5 or 4.4.2?

No reply, old version, missing info. Resolving.
