Printing issues

Hi All,

I have used libgnomeprint for a few years and was fully satisfied with
it, but, suddenly, after upgrading to a new Linux distribution, I have
got a problem:

 the first call to gnome print functions give me segmentation fault
 with the following message:

 GThread-ERROR **: file gthread-posix.c: line 135 (): error 'No such process'
 during 'pthread_getschedparam (pthread_self(), &policy, &sched)'

 After some researching it became clear that this error appears only
 if I use a special database library and if I connect to a remote
 database server before the call of gnome print.
 The version of the libgnomeprint, glib and that database library is
 the same as in the previous ( working ) distribution, so it seems that this error
 goes from some other module, used by libgnomeprint.

 I haven't any idea what to do with it ...

 Gnome print list seems don't work already - there isn't any new
 messages since the January 2007, my messages doesn't appears there

 I have decided to take a look at the GtkPrint engine, but the
 documentation is very limited, only api reference ...
 The only sample file I have found with a help of gtk-app-devel-list
 member is a printing.c from
 But it represents a high level api GtkPrintOperation, which is based on a special dialog form, so
  creation of print context is hidden.
  I look for a way to define the printer, print context, etc. manually
  from the application code as it was possible with the libgnomeprint
  1) to avoid extra, unnecessary dialog boxes and appropriate
  keyboard/mouse actions of the user;
  2) to be possible to print from a console application.

  Any advice is highly appreciated.
