The printer settings do not appear in the system settings. How to make them appear. I'm using CINNAMON in Fedora 25.

cups was having problems, run sudo dnf update and see if cups is on the list. Several people reported problems, and the update I got today with a new cups in it, solved the problems.

do lspci and lsmod and post both here, as text. Might be something simple to fix. How does your printer connect to the computer, usb or network?

Thanks for the answer. But I think the problem is with Cinnamon: printer settings appear in KDE and Gnome ... do not appear on Cinnamon

It's simple:

sudo dnf install system-config-printer
