The --with-gnome-print option is known to be broken (afaik it's never
worked properly in Inkscape). The issue had been tracked to problems in
However, gtk-2.10 includes a new print dialog that the gtk developers
say will work much better. I haven't tested this yet and don't know of
anyone who has tried hooking it up. So that would be the next step.
We are upgrading the dependency version for Inkscape 0.45 from gtk-2.4
to gtk-2.8. Going to 2.10 is a large jump for inkscape since some
platforms don't yet have it, but we don't know of any issues that would
prevent use of 2.10 on a distro-specific basis.
Once Inkscape moves to gtk-2.10, implementing that print dialog will be
a top priority. I estimate this will occur as part of the 0.46 release,
probably some time in mid- to late-2006.
