Bug Description

Impact
======
The Ubuntu Desktop Team would like to add a button to the "Printers" part of the Settings app (gnome-control-center) named "Additional Printer Settings" that will open system-config-printer. system-config-printer has been part of the Ubuntu default install for years.

Justification
==============
The GNOME integrated Printer Settings is nice but it still misses a few settings that were easily configurable in Ubuntu 17.04. The most prominent missing settings is Printer Sharing. See GNOME upstream bug https://bugzilla.gnome.org/692532

Hopefully, we can drop the button before 18.04 LTS is released.

Notifications
=============

https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-translators/2017-September/007405.html

Other Info
==========
At the same time, we'll replace one string in Ubuntu Dock settings from "Screen Placement" to "Placement on Screen". (LP: #1715869)

This won't be reflected in the desktop guide until 18.04, so no problem from a docs/translation POV.

---------------
gnome-control-center (1:3.26.0-0ubuntu2) artful; urgency=medium

  [ James Henstridge ]
  * debian/patches/connectivity-switch.patch: watch the correct property
    so the connectivity switch updates correctly. (LP: #1715662)

  [ Didier Roche ]
  * debian/patches/ubuntu-printer-support.patch: (LP: #1718083)
    - Temporary add an additional advanced printer button.
      g-c-c printers panel doesn't support printer sharing and other
      features.
      Workaround it for now by adding in multiple places an advanced printer
      button starting system-config-printer to avoid doubling the panel
      in Settings.
  * debian/patches/ubuntu-language-support.patch:
    clean up ui file and align right, as for advanced printer setttings button.
  * debian/patches/71_ubuntu_dock_settings.patch: (LP: #1718612)
    - as suggested by the community, change label "screen position" by
      "position on screen"
    - change margin to match other panels
    - only display "show on" when having multiple displays
