Reboot. Or dbl click on the 007 module and activate it.

With Cinnamon DE to add a printer to my system I use either Menu > Admin > Manage Printing or Menu > Admin > Print Settings.

007 module is already activated, in the other hand, there is no menu entry such as those which happens to be different than Cinnamon.
