Bug description:
  Adding an SMB-Printserver, the app crashed.


  The crash is fixed in Utopic but the installation of smbclient
  triggered by system-config-printer still does not work.


  If a user has the default installation of Ubuntu and sets up a print
  queue to print on an SMB-shared (usually Windows servers) remote
  printer, the steps for setting up the queue are correctly done but the
  queue is not finally created as the SMB CUPS backend is missing.So the
  user will not be able to print on Windows-shared printers if he does
  not install the "smbclient" package manually.

  [Test Case]

  Take an absolutely standard installation of Utopic (or uninstall
  smbclient) and try to set up a remote printer which is shared by
  Windows server. As system-config-printer does not install the
  smbclient package (which contains the SMB CUPS backend) you will not
  be able to finish the setup of the print queue.

  With the proposed package this gets fixed as there the package
  installation facility is fixed.

  [Regression Potential]

  Low, as the changes are only in the code which gets used when the
  presence/absence of the SMB backend is actually checked and the
  package installation done in case of absence. If the installation
  fails for some reason, system-config-printer will not crash.
