Hi Lukas,

Looks nice :)

Thanks! :-)

... however I'm afraid some screens still need to be enhanced.

Was waiting for that :-)

For instance this one:

* Every button that opens a pop-up dialog should have "..." at the end
of the label. Aren't "Print Test Page" and "Remote Access" that case?
Hard to say.

In that case, they should. But let's put this "..."-issue somewhere into
the style guide. Maybe we can put it down next Tuesday when the topic is
pop ups anyway.

* There are two different "Print Test Page" buttons (for two different
printer types), but they're on different places horizontally. Please,
unify them :)

OK, done.

* I have no clue what "Remote Access" means, what can I do there? Check
the printer remotely? Configure it remotely? What "access" means?

It allows you to choose general access settings for CUPS.
If you choose e.g. "do not allow remote access" cannot share your local
Maybe we should name it "CUPS Access Settings"?
Having the problem that the user needs to know what CUPS is.

* Button "Print via Network" is that another type of "Test Page"?

Wow! I am surprised that this label is perceived as confusing.
Just out of curiousity:
How did you come to this association?
What did you expect behind a button called "Print via Network"?

The dialog is just a bit confusing if you don't know more.

Did it make sense to you, once you orientated yourself?

Help didn't
help me here :) Anyway, the meaning should be obvious even without help.

This was intended :-)
As you already mentioned: the dialog should be quite comprehensive
without help :-)
