Xprint works perfectly fine out of the box.

Well I'm sure it does, But when I set up a printer in cups, and have Xprint running, I get the Printers up in Mozilla as "something@somewhere" (it's been a while). When I try to point my printouts to one of those printers, nothing happens. Using lpr, lp, gtklp or kprinter, The printing (almost) always works. So I did not investigate time to find out why XPrint did not work. Instead I removed XPrint.

I don't remember receiving a bug report from you.

I did not invest any time trying to find out what was happening. Instead I Removed Xprint, as I saw no use for it. What would it actually give us over using cups with lp/lpr/kprinter/gtklp ?
