Has Libreoffice 5.0 intentionally dropped printer support on Linux?

I've just installed LibreOffice_5.0.0_Linux_x86-64_deb.tar.gz (I was previously using version 3.4.3) and the printer admin tool (spadmin) is missing from /opt/libreoffice5.0/program.

Well... no great matter... I installed my previous psprint.conf in /opt/libreoffice5.0/share/psprint but Libreoffice isn't picking up my list of printers from it.

Is this intentional or a huge bug? As it stands I cannot print from Libreoffice 5.0

How is one meant to add printers to Libreoffice?

Hi ruffle

Re-Setting to a Default Profile (Q56338) & re-start. It will pick up all available printers & make them available to you.
