please bear in mind that the print plug-in already has some of this
functionality. We should at least contact the gimp-print people and
ask what thoughts they have already put into this and what they
have come up with.
I've read through these messages (at least since I noticed the
comments about paper sizes), and I'm trying to understand exactly what
problem people are trying to solve. I'm not familiar with libpaper,
so I don't know what this is all about. Could someone fill me in?
The print plugin (actually, the entire package) does support custom
paper sizes, at least on printers that allow it; some printers don't
However, there was this comment:
But, we're talking about *paper* here. A4 for me is the same size
as A4 for another user, surely? There are only a limited number
of paper sizes in existence, and they should all be available
The physical paper size of A4 is standardized; the area that can
actually be printed on varies by printer. Again, since I don't know
what the problem is, I don't know whether this is an issue.
