There is no printer module yet in Plasma 5.

You can use the built-in web cups configuration. Just point a browser to http://localhost:631

There is a good printer configuration module at the KDE Software center. The software center is bundled with KDE Plasma. Wait for the list to update, and type 'printers' in the search box.

You need to:

  1. Install cups with sudo apt install cups (I'm using Arch, not Ubuntu, so I'm guessing here, but it should be that or something very similar).
  2. Then start + enable the cups service, i.e. sudo systemctl start cups and sudo systemctl enable cups. After that, you should already be able to manage your printers on your browser at http://localhost:631.
  3. [Optional] If you want to use the KDE System Settings to manage your printers then you need to install the KDE print manager (the package's name is "print-manager" so you'll probably get it installed with sudo apt install print-manager).
