  Installing printer driver via control panel hangs

Status in system-config-printer package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Trying to add a printer via system settings.
  Got to a messagebox that said "Installing driver openprinting-gutenprint.  Installing..."
  and then hung at 50% progress.

  ps shows that dpkg and dpkg-preconfigure terminated, but no parent
  reaped them:

  Clicking cancel on the messagebox did nothing; everything was still

  Looks like this was mentioned once before,

  Doing kill -HUP to the process "/usr/bin/python /usr/share/system-config-printer/system-config-printer.py"
  unblocked everything, and dpkg-cache policy reported that openprinting-gutenprint was installed.
  Control panel still didn't show the printer I'd wanted, so I tried it again, and this time it completed (slowly).
