I never managed to get the TDE print stuff working by whatever method I 
installed it. Wheezy or Squeeze.. 'localhost:631' in a browser, the 
method provided by CUPS itself, is the proper way to configure the print 
system in Debian and is DE independent.

IMO there is not much point in the TDE stuff existing at all (especially 
if it doesn't work properly)
