Bug Description

Binary package hint: f-spot

There is a possibility of embedding the paper size combo and orientation
combo in the print dialog since Gtk+ 2.17.4. It is activated by calling the
gtk_print_operation_set_embed_page_setup() function.

It would be nice to have this feature also in f-spot, as photos do not have an
absolute size. You select the print size of a photo only when you actually
print it and photos are often printed on sizes which are not the standard size
of the printer (4x6 inches/10x15 cm). So the page size and orientation should
be easily accessable during the printing action, which means that they are best
placed in the printing dialog.

To implement this one only needs a small patch doing the following things:

 - Remove the "Page Setup" menu entries (and toolbar buttons)
 - Remove call-back functions to open the "Page Setup" dialog
 - Add call of gtk_print_operation_set_embed_page_setup() function to
   initialization of print dialog
 - Add calls to load page setup setting on print dialog initialization and
   save them on OK/Print/Apply in print dialog (to remember next print dialog
   call or even next session).

Note that for testing it is also highly recommended to fix bug 657505.

Thanks a lot for reporting this bug, but I have marked it as invalid as a papercut as F-Spot is no longer included in the default Ubuntu installation, nor is it a featured application in the Software Centre.
