[PLUG] Local printer add greyed out in kubuntu

Printer/Cups weirdness with Kubuntu as print server.

I have a PCI card with two parallel ports.  Kernel sees them as lp0 & lp1.  A 
few weeks ago, I successfully (and easily) installed two parallel printers, 
an HP Laser, and an Epson inkjet.

Inkjet stopped working because CUPS can't find lp1.  Laser working and 
attached to hp:/par/HP_Laserjet_5si?/device=/dev/parport0.

I removed the inkjet in an attempt to reinstall and the local printer is 
greyed out.  The cups browser interface (localhost:631) doesn't present a 
parallel option either.
