add printer

I have just downloaded PC Linux preveiw 8 and it looks very good, I can not find a specific forum for it so I will ask the question here. When opening Configure Printing Manager I get the message Err - KDE Control Module Unable to retrieve the printer list. Error recieved from manager. Connection to cups server failed. Any ideas!
