If you go to Menu > Preferences > Printers you will open up the Printers module of the new gnome-contol-center. It doesn't do much because the Gnome3 developers haven't gotten that far in class yet.
If however you run the following command:
- Code: Select all
Then you will open up the old printer configuration utility written by the Gnome2 developers before they were all fired. That should get you to a Properties option.
There's a good chance that I have misunderstood your description of the problem in which case I have wasted a perfectly good rant for nothing
