I installed gnome-cups-manager from the 6-stable-packages, which also installed cups-base-1.2.2 as a dependency.
I configured cups properly and it was possible to configure my printer using the webinterface, but not gnome-cups-manager.
When starting the application and becoming administrator, in "Step 1 of 2: Printer Connection", no detected printers are shown. The real problem is that when clicking on "Use another printer by specifying a port" and clicking on the Forward-Button in order to reach the "Step 2 of 2: Printer Driver"-window, in the "Manufacturer" drop-down menu nothing can be selected, the menu just remains grey.
Therefore you cannot configure your printer using gnome-cups manager.
When configuring your printer through the webinterface, later it also appears in gnome cups manager, but it is never possible to configure it through the "add printer" procedure, as descibed above.

I know that this problem appears only with the new cups version 1.2, with the older cups version gnome-cups-manager used to work fine.

When starting gnome-cups-manager from a terminal the following is displayed:

# gnome-cups-manager

(gnome-printer-view:882): GnomeUI-WARNING **: While connecting to session manager:
Authentication Rejected, reason : None of the authentication protocols specified are supported and host-based authentication failed.

** (gnome-printer-view:882): WARNING **: IPP request failed with status 1030

** (gnome-printer-view:882): WARNING **: IPP request failed with status 1030

Maybe this information helps.
