Title:
  Cannot add printer attached to another PC in network

Status in cups package in Ubuntu:
  Invalid

Bug description:
  All 3 PCs in my simple home network run Precise & are peers (i.e. no
  server). A printer is attached to a desktop by usb cable. I cannot
  successfully add this printer to laptop. If I try the standard GUI
  (for Printing called from Settings GUI), it  allows me to to find it
  (as 192.168.1.2:631) but when I select the make & model, it says CUPS
  error "client-error-not-possible". When I use CUPS (i.e. localhost:631
  in Firefox & select 'Add a printer'), it allows me to do it but it
  then says 'not responding' when I try to print to it.
