OO.org was broken in not enabling printer settings to be configured,
among other things. There is a Bugzilla report at:
It was initially prompted by the FC removal of spadmin, which was
required by OO.org to setup and configure printers. This step was taken
presumably as part of the incremental progress toward integration with
CUPS. It was not without issues initially, as you will note from some of

However, I am now back to the new FC version, which as I mention is
largely fixed. There are still some lingering issues (also noted in the
