I made a fresh Fedora 21 install today, Xfce et al.
using Heisenbug netinst.iso.

The installed Xfce desktop lacks printer setup.
I installed control-center and gave the command
control-center printers.  This installed for my hp 2605dn
laserjet.  Test page worked, as did geany.  lp still
prints blank pages, no error messages seen.
