Apparently YaST not "seeing" the printer queue doesn't have to mean it isn't there and accessible.
    I always try to get reproducible results. If some installed package behaves shaky I remove it and make sure no remnants are left. I then install again painstakingly moving through the menus. Never hurry when configuring through a GUI.

    On client 3400G with yast2 printer it takes a second or two until remote printers show up in menu "printer connections".

    I've just revisited this. For test purposes I have a MacBook server with a USB-connected Brother DCP7055 printer.

    On my Linux laptop, I proceeded to add it manually...
    Code:
    sudo lpadmin -p Brother -E -v ipp://192.168.1.14/printers/Brother_DCP_7055 -m everywhere
    I could also have used the Avahi hostname...
    Code:
    sudo lpadmin -p Brother -E -v ipp://macbook-air.local/printers/Brother_DCP_7055 -m everywhere
    After that I could print a test page successfully.

    I note that the CUPS web interface (Aministration > Add Printers) discovered the printer as well. It appeared as "Discovered Network Printers: Brother DCP-7055 @ MacBook Air (DCP-7055)", but I did not proceed with the "automatically discovered" printer configuration using this method.

    As expected 'avahi-browse -art' also reports the shared printer...

    Code:
    =   eth1 IPv4 Brother DCP-7055 @ MacBook Air      Secure Internet Printer local
       hostname = [MacBook-Air.local]
       address = [192.168.1.14]
       port = [631]
       txt = ["printer-type=0x4809046" "printer-state=3" "Scan=T" "Copies=T" "TLS=1.2" "UUID=ab44f745-6a82-351e-7d9d-a5d9bfcd8375" "pdl=application/octet-stream,application/pdf,application/postscript,image/jpeg,image/png,image/pwg-raster" "product=(DCP-7055)" "priority=0" "note=MacBook Air" "adminurl=https://MacBook-Air.local.:631/printers/Brother_DCP_7055" "ty=Brother DCP-7055 CUPS" "rp=printers/Brother_DCP_7055" "qtotal=1" "txtvers=1"
