Description bluescreenavenger 2010-12-09 05:48:16 UTC
Version:           4.2.0 (using KDE 4.5.80) 
OS:                Linux

To make it easier for the user I think a button for searching for a printer on the network instead of having them memorize a path, will be eaiser for them.

With the command line I can list all SMB compatible computers with "smbtree -N" and shares. with "smbclient -L COMPUTERNAME -N" I can see which shares are actually printers. 

It would be nice if KDE could do this in the background, to allow the user to select the printer, instead of typing it in.

I can't seem to find this KCM in the list

Reproducible: Didn't try
