Interesting. After Bill mentioned gal I checked and gal wasn't
installed anyway. Odd, since I thought gnome apps needed GAL.
If it is a font problem shouldn't there be similar problems with other
gnome apps? What other apps use gnome-print that I could test? I have
AbiWord installed and can print out of it just fine. Dia works just
fine. Just thinking out loud.
