Well, now that the final has been released I can tell you that you are
lucky you are not using it on 64-bit Ubuntu. It is still a 32-bit only
app, which means that the print dialog box on Ubuntu does not list
printers installed via CUPS. As a beta tester I went around and around
with them about this. They never responded specifically to my pleas to
make it available as a 64-bit app.

I saved the instructions from the development team for how to get the
print dialog box on Ubuntu amd64 to show my printers. However, I
probably won't bother. Instead I'll just run print commands through
kprinter. I sure wish I didn't need it.
