FS#1519 - pysmbc seems broken

pysmbc is requiered to use the browse button while trying to add a new printer using Samba.

Nevertheless, after installing this package, the button remains disable.

To reproduce:

- Go to System Settings -> Printers
- Add printer
- Click Windows printer via SAMBA

- Install pysmbc from [core] (sudo pacman -S pysmbc)
- Repeat same steps. Button still not working.

This task does not depend on any other tasks.

Looking at this (pretty old) thread it seems the bug does not depend on pysmbc being installed or not.

Anyway, since I was looking at the package I also updated it, but again no effect on this specific issue on my machine.

It's strange... I have tried many distros and it only works on Linux Mint. I always add my printer using localhost:661, but I think is a useful feature if you don't know the full path of the printer in the samba network.
