Try this:  Open in a Web browser 


You should be able to printer setup in there.  Basically, CUPS, which is
now the standard printing software for all Unixes, has a built-in Web
server for administration and configuration purposes.  It's highly
reliable, and often can be used to quickly solve printing problems even
when distros' tools for managing printing strike out.  Works on OS X,

Be aware that the breadth of printer makes/models you're shown is
constrained by what RPMs of printer drivers you've installed, so you
might want to ensure you've loaded up on printer drivers before visiting
the above-cited CUPS admin pages.
