Issue: The current unix print dialog is insufficient for Xprint. Xprint is able to query available printers and printer attributes including supported paper size, supported page orientation, colors(mono, grayscape, color), plex(simpley, duplex, tumble) and so on. The Unix print dialog for Mozilla should be able to reflect this - for example user enters/selects printer name and Xprint API returns all requested attributes and user can select them (basically the same as the native WindowNT print dialog does...)...
This issue is handled with the embedding API.. the embedding app can fly its own dialog to handle this. This is not something that will be done for the current linux dialog
Can you explain "this issue is handled with the embedding API" ? How should this work/be implemented ? I thought this could be done in the same place as the current config dialog for the PostScript module (PostScript module also needs more configuration options and the ability to determinate some values itself (like the list of available printers (via lpstat)).
verified in 4/3 build.
