Since "upgrading" to KDE Plasma 5, I have no access to PPD-derived printer options in the print dialog for applications like kde-apps/okular.

For an example of what I am talking about, see https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-54464.

Upstream, whether it's KDE or Qt, seems to be utterly uninterested in fixing this issue. It's hard for me to believe that they could just be ignoring this and I am surprised the voices of protest aren't louder. Maybe Is there a workaround of which I'm not aware. Or maybe nobody is using KDE anymore (I'm open to suggestions for alternatives!).

This makes printing from KDE applications very broken, as I have to go into the CUPS default printer settings every time I want to make a change.
