There were incompatible API changes intoduced in gnome-print 0.21,
which is what must be causing these problems. For a while Guppi
supported both the old and new gnome-print APIs, but I stopped
worrying about supporting the new API once Helix released their
gnome-print 0.21 package.
...but maybe that was premature. I'd like Guppi to not be a *total*
nightmare to install on RH6.x systems, which is why I added guile
1.3.0 support a while ago.
Maybe someone who has a RH6.x system with only gnome-print 0.20 could
try the following: grab guppi3 out of CVS, and change lines 185-188 of
187: ### Support for the old gnome-print API is now officially deprecated.
188: ### AC_CHECK_LIB(gnomeprint, gnome_font_get_size, AC_MSG_RESULT("Using new GnomeFont API"), AC_DEFINE(USING_OLD_FONT_API), $GNOME_PRINT_LIBS)
187: ### Support for the old gnome-print API is NOT officially deprecated.
188: AC_CHECK_LIB(gnomeprint, gnome_font_get_size, AC_MSG_RESULT("Using new GnomeFont API"), AC_DEFINE(USING_OLD_FONT_API), $GNOME_PRINT_LIBS)
(i.e. change the verion # in line 185 and uncomment line 188.)
Then autogen.sh, configure and make as usual.
If this still works, let me know and I'll adjust Guppi's build
GNU/Linux: Free your mind and your OS will follow.
