Printer goes away

Using mint 7 kde ce.

I add a printer through the system settings. and it works fine. However, the next time I log in it's gone.

So I ran system settings as root and added the printer and it wouldn't print.

Anyone else seen this behaviour?

Not sure why but it may be working now. Re-installed my printer (old HP 720c) for about the 10th time. After restarting the system I still see the printer available.

Glad it's still there but I wish I knew why.
