This is a major regression from all previous netscape and mozilla versions that did not require this. This makes it very hard to evaluate new versions. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Install phoenix 2. Try to print something. 3. Error message appears saying Xprint server not running. Actual Results: Error message appears saying Xprint server not running. Expected Results: Printed the page.
you do not require root permission to use xprint where do you get that false information from? you can fetch the solaris binary tarball release from http://puck.informatik.med.uni-giessen.de/download/xprint-2003-05-08-release_008-sparc-sun-solaris2.7.tar.gz unpack the content into any location and follow the instructions in the readme
The information is from the GISWxprint* packages. The xprint pages gives the impression that this is what is needed for Solaris. If I am wrong, that is good news :-)
Jan, did the hint given in comment #1 helped you with your problem? If so I'd suggest resolving this one "invalid"! Thanks a lot.
Yes it did, just tried it, thanks. Suggest improving this piint on the xprint web page though.
