Default Printer applet doesn't work
I just installed PC-BSD 9.1 rolling 32-bit and I cannot add a printer.

In PCBSD Control Panel I click the Printing icon, it asks for my root password and then there's a whole lot of nothing...

Please help me add a printer.

You could try going to your local cups web server as a work around until the problem is fixed.

I can confirm this bug in 9.1 Rolling 2013-04-03 x64 DVD ISO.

Control Panel > [Hardware] Printing > [authenticate] > no configure windows/dialogs appear. I'll ping the testing list with the problem.

EDIT: tried from the command line, with the following error:
> pc-su /usr/local/bin/system-config-printer
