Should we not move from the yast printer setup as
default to the
desktop tools and make that experience as flawless as possible? Then
the yast printer module does not to be installed by default and we
remove one element that can complicate things?
In my experience people without much computer skills or knowledge of
openSUSE look into systemsettings if they want to configure a printer.
Of course, making everything work without configuration is even
simpler, but I don't know if that's possible.
System Settings produces a
small graphic with the words: "Print service
is unavailable" and below that, "Bad file descriptor."
Windows 10 Home on this same machine automatically found and setup the
Epson printer, without any input from me at all.
A trial of Mint on a different computer (before the lightning) also
found and set up the Epson without any input from me.
Why can't OpenSUSE Leap do the same?
This is not a new printer with the new universal stuff that's been
bandied about here--it's at least 5 years old.
Simple: the firewall by default blocks printer discovery.
