Still happening on 18.04 - slight difference - I can't get past the "Select Printer Driver" screen while "Loading drivers database..." and the swirling busy icon are up, so I don't have the printer at all.

Only 'cancel' button active. Note: I'm trying to configure a Brother HL-2030 connected to Network through a FritzBox 7940 router. The printer works fine both on Fedora and macOS X systems. I opened 'System Settings', then select 'Devices' > 'Printers' > 'Add a Printer'. I entered the router address and the window shows me correctly a 'JetDirect-Printer' on 192.168.178.1. I selected the printer and pressed the 'Add' button, a window 'Select Printer Driver' appears and stuck with 'Loading drivers database...'. After about 2 minutes, stopped loading and remains blank. No drivers selection is available and I can only push the 'Cancel' button.
