There is a bug with kded that won't be started in certain cases and
without kded some other subsystems like the printing engine won't be
loaded and this causes trouble, *maybe* this is what happened to you,
I've reported this bug here:
What do you get after loggin in KDE and typing this in konsole:
ps aux|grep -w kded
You can also take a look at ~/.xsession-errors and check if there's
something about kded, if this is the case, then this bug hit you. In
this case you can go to ~/.kde/share/applnk/ and type rm -rf * this
will delete any custom menu entries, but if you log on again, kded will
start (this assumes ~/.kde is your KDE folder, it may be ~/.kde3 or
similar) again and configuring your printer may work again.
