KDE printing issue: using K_EXPORT_COMPONENT_FACT with a custom X-KDE-FactoryName

Hi, I have following issue

Printer configurations shows:
The service 'Printer Configuration' does not provide an interface 'KCModule'
with keyword 'system-config- printer-kde/'
The factory does not support creating components of the specified type.

lka@capra:~$ kcmshell4 system-config-printer-kde

kcmshell(17355)/kcontrol KCModuleLoader::loadModule: This module has no valid entry symbol at all. The reason could be that it's still using K_EXPORT_COMPONENT_FACTORY with a custom X-KDE-FactoryName which is not supported anymore

Maybe some one will give me hint how to solve it.

I am using Slackware 14.
Before I installed wxPython-, and phAdmin from slackbuilds.
Unfortunatelly I did not check if printing was working before that.

Starting cups will solve it :)

This solves mine issue:

cd /etc/rc.d
chmod +x rc.cups
./rc.cups start
