There is a GNOME CUPS front-end that we're playing with in my CVS repo, but it's not integrated into libgnomeprint yet. It's called gnome-cups-manager. I haven't done anything with it since I don't use CUPS. However, if someone wants to finish the port, I can commit it. Joe -- PGP Key : http://www.marcuscom.com/pgp.asc
