Printer setup....is a steady source of joy, and I have to admit, I struggle with the setup in YaST as well. How can we improve the workflow? It was mentioned (not in this show) that Fedora is way better in that sense - Neal, can you comment? Beside this, default setup requires root permissions for nearly all print activites. Do I want to give everyone root access on the family machine? Clearly not. Nathan pointed me to , I feel we should make this standard.
One serious issue missing in YaST2 printer setup is being able to rename a printer. I was faced with that this week.
One more thing I find tedious is that when using the wizard, you first need to complete the procedure to add a printer before you can select it for edit and change the options (tray x installed, default paper type etc). When adding many (different) printers, this adds serious time to the user experience.
