Gnome printer setup

In my Gnome menu (on Debian unstable, Gnome 2.6) I’ve got “System Tools, Printers“, which runs foomatic-gui, which I can never get to work. I’ve just discovered “Desktop Preferences, System Tools, Printers” which is really nice! Why didn’t anyone tell me about this before? Why are there two System Tools sections? WTF isn’t the good one somewhere more obvious? Whose fault is this, Debian’s or Gnome’s? I don’t know where to file the bug.

I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
