When trying to add a wireless printer (Canon MG 5250 with cnij drivers from AUR) with system-config-printer, nothing appends.

The printer is visible but cannot be add. Click on the "add" button make open the configuration window, which immediately disapear.

Adding the printer with the cups web browser interface works, and then printer works perfectly, so no problem with cups or the drivers.

Additional info:
* package version : 1.4.1-1
* debug log : see attached file.

Orphaned. Assigning to maintainers of packages depending on it.
