Add printer fails

Hello, all.  I have a pristine install of Squeeze with Trinity 3.5.12.
I clicked on Settings / Peripherals / Printers to add a new printer.  I
entered Administration mode which asked me for my user password as it I
was using sudo rather than the root password as if I was using su.

I clicked on Add a printer. It took a very long time but eventually
brought up the new printer wizard.  I selected an TCP printer, entered
the IP address, clicked next and was told:

The executable /opt/kde3/bin/make_driver_db_cups could not be found in
your PATH. Check that this program exists and is accessible in your PATH

Not surprising as I would suspect this is in /opt/trinity/bin.  Is this
something I am doing wrong or a bug?

I created a symbolic link named /opt/kde3 for /opt/trinity. It did not
eliminate the long waits but it did allow me to create the printer.
Thanks - John
