I hope this is the right package to file this bug against.
I have a Samsung ML-1210 printer. By default debian does not seem to include a driver for this printer.
If I select 'Search for a printer driver to download' it finds a driver for the
printer, but when I select it and click the 'Forward' button to download it,
the list view is empty and there is nothing for me to select or do, even though
the label at the top says 'For the printer you have selected there are drivers
available for download'.
In short, the 'Search for a printer driver to download' functionality
seems to be broken for me.
Please let me know if there is any further information you need.
You can find a screencast here, in case my description wasn't very good:
(note that the network is up and running and working despite what the
network-manager applet icon would suggest.)
