meta-kde (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

In KDE3 the kprinter tool provided a convenient way to print from any application that supports calling an external print tool.

Kprinter obviously has been removed from KDE4.

What is its replacement?

xpp is still at version 1.5 from 2004.

Thanks for reporting this feature request! Unfortunately, at this time Kubuntu does not have the developer manpower needed to implement and maintain many features at the Kubuntu level. This wish would best be reported and tracked at, so that it can be implemented by the KDE developers themselves. Once implemented in KDE, it will be included in Kubuntu once the KDE version the feature is implemented in reaches Kubuntu.
