KPrinter as default in gnome (Ubuntu)

Hi guys,

I'm currently having issues with the default printing of Ubuntu (CUPS), since it takes like 10 minutes or so if the print job size is above 5 mb.

I switched to KPrinter and its much faster, but the problem is that I can't use kprinter as the default dialog.

Is there any way to set kprinter as a default dialog, so i dont have to do the "run kprinter, drag document to window, select" routine?
