CUPS specifies that its printer names do not allow for slashes. Slashes are reserved to separate printer instances from the main print queue. (Think of a CUPS printer instance as "print job setting profile of a printer that can be used by just using a name".

You may have a main printer "hp". Then you can create printer instances by the name of


and so on (and set all job options as you want them for each instance). This is supported by KDEPrint.

So by far this is not at all a bug, it is a feature to group CUPS instances.
