I encountered the following problem. I hope that someone can help me.
Yesterday i made the preupgarde from F15 to F16, which worked quite
good, but it installed Gnome Desktop, which was not in my sense. So i did
yum groupremove Gnome Desktop enviroment
this removed all the packages from gnome.
After this i did:
yum groupinstall KDE
Which installed KDE.
Now: If i lof in as root or as a user, i cannot print. I see the
printers (except in thunderbird and firefox), but when i press "print"
So i thought of looking into the printer configurations, but when i
try to open the printer configs gui the following error is said:
Printerconfigurations has no interface "KCModule" with the key
"system-config-printer-kde/system-config-printer-kde.py" The factory
does not support the creation of components of the mentioned type.
(translated from German to English by me).
Note: The last time i did change my desktop from Gnome to KDE with the
above mentioned method, printing worked perfectely. So i think, that
there might have happened system with the preupgrade.
Thx. for help, Benjamin.

I did not solve the problem but made a work around after trying to solve
the problem. It seems that there is something wrong with cups or hplips;
i Do not know.
but I made the following:
Installed hplips and cups again. And started cups in a terminal:
# service cups start
# Redirecting to /bin/systemctl start cups.service
After that i opened my printer configs and installed a new printer.
After that my printer worked again.
I´m not sure if service cups start did solve the problem, but i read it
