Description of problem:
The Print function (file -> Print) whjen used causes Eclipse to crash. I will submit a bug report.
NOTE: I was surprised to see that print functionality was restored on Linux after beingdisabled for so many years. But now disappointed it still does not work.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a .java file
2. select File -> Print
3. A print file dialog appears. Select working printer. Click on OK
4. Eclipse crashes
Document should appear at printer.
No. I will submit a bug report file.

Bug report generated when Eclipse crashed due to trying to print a file.
This is an upstream bug. I'll find the number and get back to you.
Hmm. Is this the same as one of these bugs?
Note that the disable printing flag isn't available in 3.3.0 which is in F8.
Does printing work with an upstream Eclipse download? eclipse.org/downloads
We found that this bug has been already registered in the upstream database https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=220868and believe that it is more appropriate to let it be resolved upstream.
Fedora will continue to track the issue in the centralized upstream bug tracker, and will review any bug fixes that become available for consideration in future updates.
Thank you for the bug report.
