Bug Description

I spend a good ten minutes trying to figure out why my networked printer wasn't working. I then realized that the printer was not enabled! (Right click printer icon -> Enabled). I then thought that they should really add an overlay icon on the printer icon to indicate when it's not enabled. Well.... actually there is an overlay icon but it's barely visible... I only noticed it after a while. Red ink anyone?

Actually, on second thoughts, red ink is probably not the right colour as "paused" does not mean error. I'll let the design team pick the right colour.

The pause icon does blend in a little too well with the printer icon. Perhaps a yellow/orange colour would be better.

Design, what do you think of this?
