FirewallD is not running. Network printer detection needs services mdns, ipp, ipp-client and samba-client enabled on firewall. I don't think there is an installed firewall.

No one seems to say that it will solve the problem or that by switching to mate from cinnamin will do it too.
I know that in previous versions of Mint and Ubuntu installing a printer was not too bad to do and most of the time I was able to do it unless I had some kind of problem with my network.
Now it seems we took a step backward and got rid a a gui which will lead us novices through the process to install a printer. Installing printers seems to be the most nasty job in computers and I have to say that Apple has had that right for many years. (Although to accomplish that, Apple makes its users buy apple only printers at a much higher price - not the way I want to go.)
I hope we can fix this issue soon before we lose even more new converts from the evil umpire.
