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?
Right. That should have happened a longer time ago. But "something" in openSUSE or SUSE didn't or couldn't make the decision to let the YaST printer module RIP (regardless what developers tell who know its code ;-)
Eum... I'm not sure every desktop contains a proper printer configuration tool. And there is text mode too (think a print server).
I always start configuring a printer with YaST, then switch to the cups webpage. I have no problems with the YaST module myself, except that it is very slow.
