Thank you for your feedback. Actually this is expected. This package only provides the CUPS file (along with depending filters and/or binaries). Configuration within CUPS is still up to the administrator, since I as a package maintainer cannot know how your printer is attached. The QL720NW in particular has multiple interfaces (serial, network, USB). During installation a message is shown that the printer needs to be configured, i.e. something along those lines:

echo "Restart CUPS to load the new files"
echo "You can now register your new printer using the web interface at:"
echo " http://localhost:631/"

Should this be made more specific? Since I'm using these "instructions" across a variety of packages I'm not too eager to change them without a good suggestion ;).

As I had still some issues with getting my printer to work properly, which could of course just appear on my system, I changed the connection from the automatically found network printers (mine is connected via WiFi) in CUPS to "Internet Printing Protocol (ipp)" and connected via "socket://hostname:9100" to the printer.
