Re: gnumeric is inexplicably broken on my machine: Now working

Printing has been screwed up on this very machine---when I print one page from emacs ('lpr-region' or 
'lpr-buffer') three pages are printed, and sometimes blank pages are ejected.  So apparently my efforts to 
purge the system of CUPS has failed.  There are a number of troublesome dependencies.  

Perhaps that is the tree, up which I should bark.

Thanks for the clarification.  I will try to follow up if I figure out what gives.

Hi Alan,

if you want to use gnumeric without cups (or you want gnumeric to ignore
any remnants of a cups installation) compile it with --without cups or
remove the content of
If those libraries (libgnomeprintcups.*) are not available, gnumeric
will not be able to access cups and simply use lpr.
