XSL:FO

I apologise if this has been covered in the list before.

Is there a way to get hook up XSL:FO to libgnomeprint?

I'm writing a GNOME XML editor (www.conglomerate.org) which can show previews 
of XML transformations, and it would be very nice to feed xsl:fo documents 
internally represented as libxml directly into gnomeprint to show previews.

If this doesn't exist yet, I _might_ write it, if enough people are 
interested, possibly spinning it off into as an LGPL library.

Alternatively, have I missed an efficient way of wiring up existing code to 
achieve the same result?  The other stuff I've seen out there are Fop and 
jfor, which don't seem to be directly compatible with gnome-print.

Dave

(From gnome-print's point of view it's more of a utility library than a 
back-end)

Not really, it has a general-purpose XML editing widget although it has extra 
information beyond the DTD to display things "nicely" (e.g. it can use Bonobo 
controls for displaying certain types of embedded content).  I'm hoping to 
support special-purpose controls where appropriate.

I wanted to use the gnome-print preview widget as a way to display xsl:fo, 
though it looks like I'll have to write my own FO formatter to do that :-(

Adding a new Printer

Hello,
How does one go about adding support for a new printer to the gnome-print 
libraty? The device in question requires compressed bitmap input. 
Thanks.
John

libgnomeprint 2.1.1 question

Hi,

I'm currently updating Mandrake cooker to GNOME 2.1.1 and I've found
some problems with libgnomeprint 2.1.1 :

in short : it is not parallel installable with libgnomeprint 2.0.x,
because it try to install some files (the libgnomeprint-2.0-font-install
binary, the .gmo files, and some data files in
DATADIR/gnome-print-2.0..)

Is it wanted (since libgnomeprint 2.1.x is not ABI compatible with
2.0.x) ? Or are those files supposed to replace files from 2.0.x and
libgnomeprint 2.0.x library will still be able to use them ?

In the same area, I think I've found a bug in
libgnomeprint/gpa/gpa-media.c and gpa-vendor.c =>
DATADIR/gnome-print-2.0 is used to search for media/media.xml and
vendors files but these files (from libgnomeprint/data) are installed in
DATADIR/gnome-print-2.2/.. My guess this is a missing search&replace
(maybe the code should be changed to use a #define positionned on gcc
command line..) BTW, this is causing segfault in gedit..
