Not sure what cause this, but I have had similar problem with
system-config-printer in FC 4 too. It's really buggy IMO. I would set up a
printer system-config-printer but it would not show up
in /etc/cups/printers.conf (and in any application for that matter).
Maybe try the following:
1. set up your printer
2. run this command from terminal:
3. Restart cups :
/sbin/service cups restart
Then check to see if your printer is in /etc/cups/printers.conf:
grep URI /etc/cups/printers.conf
You should see your printer listed there. If it is, then you should be fine.
Hope that helps
