Bug Description

Binary package hint: nautilus

Hi, I thought this would be a great way to print large numbers of documents, if you could select them on nautilus and drag them to the printer icon, just like this:

If you could put the printer icon directly on the desktop, it would certainly be very nice with this feature in my opinion.

Thanks for your bug. Reassigning to gnome-cups-manager. That would probably be not trivial to do and we have lot of others issues to work on before so I don't think it'll be worked by the desktop or printing teams soon. You are welcome to work on that feature if you want though

This is an upstream wishlist bug, but since g-c-m is dead upstream, this won't be done anytime soon. Patches appreciated, of course ;)

gnome-cups-manager has been removed since Ubuntu 8.10 and has been replaced by system-config-printer, moving to system-config-printer.
Since this is an upstream wishlist bug report it should probably be forwarded upstream.

affects: gnome-cups-manager (Ubuntu) → system-config-printer (Ubuntu)
