    Default suse 12.2-installing printer-progression bar jump to 100% and printer is not found

    on my sony vaio with opensuse 12.2 and kde 4.9.4 when I tried to install a printer often it doesn't find the printer, I go to yast>printer>add new printer then a printing (translated fom italian) progression bar appear, then another printer driver recovery (translated from italian) progression bar appear, well, when this last progression bar is quite slow and from 4% jump suddenly to 100% the printer is not found, when this arrive approximately to 40% then jump suddenly to 100% the printer is found.
    as the printer is found after 3 times in average, is there any way to avoid this problem ????
    I would like to give to my son a working system not a system where you have to try 3-4 times to install a printer :-))
    thankyouverymuch, :-) ciao pier :-)

    Type the printer yourself. Some printers are never found.

    during installation I type the name, samsung or other,
    when the printer isn't found anything I type, maybe samsung or hp or nothing or click on all the printers, no driver is shown

    Let's start from the beginning:

    1. Can you tell us the make and model of your printer?
    2. Does it require third-party drivers installed?
    3. Have you tried configuring via the CUPS web interface (using your favourite browser)?

    Ntwork-connected printers can be a little more complicated to set up (comapred with local usb -connected printers), and auto-detection does not always work via SNMP discovery. YaST actually uses the underlying CUPS tools for this process. FWIW, I prefer to use the CUPS web interface for this, and manual configuration, where I select the printer connection, IP address, and driver etc. It's not hard.

    Here's the CUPS reference on network printers:

    Using Network Printers - Documentation - CUPS

    If you still feel this is an openSUSE issue with YaST, rather than some quirk of your network or attached printers, then I would recommend filing a bug report.
