Description Jens Lautenbacher 2007-11-27 17:51:23 EST
The gimp 2.4 as shipped with Fedora isn't able to print via the standard gtk
printing dialog, in spite the fact that this is one of the advertised features
of gimp 2.4. The only option to print is via the complete mess (ui wise) that is
the gutenprint plugin.
Comment 1 Nils Philippsen 2007-11-28 04:12:47 EST
A typo in the spec file caused this. Hopefully fixed packages are building right
Comment 2 Jens Lautenbacher 2007-11-28 04:22:06 EST
Is the dependency on the gutenprint-plugin also removed then? I would prefer to
totally remove this thing on some boxes I help friends with. For newbies this
thing is just impossible to understand and configure.
Comment 3 Nils Philippsen 2007-11-28 04:50:41 EST
That's the plan. Unfortunately you'll have to remove the package manually. I'll
let you know when the packages are built.
Comment 4 Nils Philippsen 2007-11-28 08:29:33 EST
Please check gimp-2.4.2-2.fc8 once it hits updates-testing, alternatively you
can download the packages directly from:

Comment 5 Jens Lautenbacher 2007-11-28 09:31:39 EST
very nice - works for me. Also the dependency on gutenprint-plugin is gone.
Comment 6 Nils Philippsen 2007-11-28 11:08:50 EST
requesting push to stable
Comment 7 Fedora Update System 2007-11-28 20:42:14 EST
