To return to the beginning of issues:

Definition of conflict with foomatic-db-compressed-ppds I see as a big 
problem. Many other DE has it as a dependency and TDE because of this makes 
it quite complicated concurrent installation with another DE.

If I understand well, the only effect is that with this package does not work 
the setup printer queue in TDE Control Center? However, the user can still 
set up the printer using the CUPS web interface. It is really useful to 
define this conflict package?
