Hi everybody,

a quite wise CUPS expert once said "exchange dungeons by trees" and that
was an inspiration for me to take your feedback and make another series
of mock ups:
http://en.opensuse.org/YaST/Development/Printer_Enhancement#Release_Candidate_2

What do you think about it?

The first feedbacks revealed a great sense of confusion about the amount
and design of information presented in the overview.
Thats why the space acquired by help was used for an overview. (Help as
such will not be dropped it will move to a button within the navigation
area :-))
One thought was to hide "print via network", "sharing" and "CUPS
autoconfig" under a "Settings" category, but this idea was dropped as
the word "Settings" as such is quite meaningless.

We also exchange "Remote Access" with "Share Printers" as this might be
easier to understand.


I am looking forward to your comments,

Martin
