Gnumeric, and as you say, changing libgnomeprint
affect all my apps.

Ok, just one more question, gnumeric/src/print.c
has a
function called:

void sheet_print (

and it uses a GnomePrintJob pointer called gpm.

What would happen if I replace for example:       
near gnumeric/src/print.c 1309, 0-1

   workbook_print_all (pj, sheet->workbook);

for something like this:

   //workbook_print_all (pj, sheet->workbook);
   gnome_print_job_print_to_file (gpm,

...Can someone help me with this???

Nothing good will happen. Specifically you wouldn't
get any output.

Now, if you want to work at that level so that the
users still think
they can select a printer but you afterwards
sidetrack the output (and
ensure that the users don't file bugs or make
derogatory comments about
gnumeric),  then the right place to insert a few
commands would be:

in src/print.c at about lines 1292 or so:

      if (default_range == PRINT_SHEET_RANGE) {
              pj->start_page = first-1;
              pj->end_page = end-1;

additional code goes here!

      gpm = gnome_print_job_new (print_config);
      pj->print_context = gnome_print_job_get_context
      pj->range = default_range;
      if (default_range == PRINT_SHEET_RANGE) {
              pj->start_page = first-1;
              pj->end_page = end-1;


Essentially you want to change the print_config to
select print to file:

to change the file name (one should suffice but this
way at least the
file name also changes in the print dialog):

      gpa_node_set_path_value (print_config, 
      gpa_node_set_path_value (print_config, 

you still need to set the printer and the transport
to `FILE'. Check out
the code in libgnomeprintui/gpaui/*.c on pointers
how to do that. I am
too busy in the moment to figure out those details.


Ok never mind, I will take a look there then, thanks
in advance :)
