I have had the experience where sometimes adding a printer via kde is easy,
and sometimes it is impossible. I would reccommend adding the printer via the
cups web interface, the kde print configuration should pick up on this and
FYI running kde as root in order to add a printer is generally not considered
safe. Try the cups webinterface:
When you install a printer, it will prompt for a login at some point. the user
is root and the password is the root password.
