I don't think there was any such problem until poppler maintainers decided to unsplit poppler into one big packages with USE flags again instead of the nice split poppler, poppler-glib (that should have been named poppler-cairo probably instead), poppler-qt3, poppler-qt4 and poppler-utils. I don't believe we should selectively cripple one GUI toolkit with not having proper printing support out of the box on a desktop profile, while others do, just because maintainers are lazy. -- Mart Raudsepp Gentoo Developer Mail: l...@gentoo.org Weblog: http://blogs.gentoo.org/leio
