The following packages have been recently added to the Cygwin distribution:

*** libgnomeprint22-2.8.0-1
*** libgnomeprintui22-2.8.0-1

These two libraries make up the GNOME Printing Architecture.


1) Printing from GNOME programs using these libraries will give you
PostScript output.  If that printer doesn't support PS, then DON'T print
to it!  (That is, unless you want to see what raw PS looks like.  Trust
me, I tried it.)  Print to file instead.

2) The default printer in Windows is used as PRINTER when you log in to
a Cygwin shell.  To change this, either you'll need to export a new
value for PRINTER (only do this if you know what you're doing!), or
change the default printer within Windows and logout and back in to Cygwin.

3) If you don't have any PS printers and don't want to manually convert
PS to PDF or whatever, I recommend using PDFCreator
( to make a PDF and print it
from Adobe Reader.
