I have a few sandbox machines in this office, so I experimented some
more, and here's what I found.

1. Vanilla installation of CentOS 7 + GNOME = works fine

2. Custom installation of CentOS 7 with KDE = prints blank page

So I guess the RHEL maintainers forgot a little dependency somewhere.

By the way, when I print from the KDE client, a peek in /var/log/cups/*
shows me that everything is fine, even though the printer printed a
blank page.

So... printer ejecting blank paper, CUPS thinking everything's OK, what
package might be missing?
