Adding a printer (local or network) was a mistake. Define the default
printer is the problem.
The situation: going somewhere with a laptop and plugging a printer
there. The printer is automatically added, OK. But it is not the default
printer automatically and if I don't want to print using
I want to define for sometimes this printer as the default one. In that
