Claws-Mail Printing
« on: May 09, 2008, 07:24:37 pm »
This is not a VL problem but may be someone can help.

I am using claws-mail and one reason was that I could print using external print commands. For that I had to configure with the flag  "--disable-gnomeprint". Now with versions 3.2 and 3.4 that does not work any longer. I had to install the sister program sylpheed in order to use external print commands.

Is it that that feature was removed from claws-mail or I do not know anymore how to put it in place? In preferences I cannot find anymore:"use external program for printing"

For printing many pages I use fmt which let's me print more letters per line and as such fewer pages:
/usr/bin/fmt -u --width=105 $1 | groff -ms | lpr

Thanks and regards
