Bug description:
  1) Raring daily Lubuntu 13.04 i386
  2) system-config-printer 1.3.11
  3) I expected the printer to be detected without a cups error. The printer was not detected.
  1) When selecting Printer from the System Tools menu the Printers-localhost dialog box appears with the following message.
  'Printing service not available. Start the service on this computer or connect to another server.'
  2) After clicking the connect button once the 'Connect to CUPS server' box appears.
  3) After clicking the connect button on this message box  the Cups server error box appears with the following dialog.
  There was an error during the CUPS operation: 'failed to connect to server'.


  As the standard installation of Lubuntu does not include avahi-daemon
  CUPS does not get started as the Upstart script for CUPS requires
  avahi-daemon to be started first. Therefore there is no printing
  functionality for Lubuntu users even with the printing stack being
  installed by default.


  Do a standard installation of Lubuntu and run

  lpstat -r

  in a terminal. The CUPS daemon is not running.

  The proposed package adds a dependency to the cups-daemon binary
  package pulling in avahi-daemon and so CUPS will start during boot.
  Check with

  lpstat -r

  in a terminal window.

  [Regression Potential]

  Low. An additional package gets installed, but this package is already
  well-known and work well in other Ubuntu flavors.
