Comment (by cmbarton):

 The wxPython GUI is set to use the platform native printing system,
 whatever that is. If I remember the more extended discussions, one cause
 of this is installation of an additional printing system with the Gnome
 windowing package. There is some kind of conflict with the wxPython
 access/implementation of the local platform printing system.

 If I recall, this is an issue with some Gnome print installations on some
 Linux platforms--not all. It does not seem to affect non-Gnome (at least
 at the time of discussions) windowing packages, nor does it seem to affect
 Mac or Windows.

 Whatever the problem is, however, it seems to be something with wxWidgets
 or the wxPython implementation of it, not something that we can fix in the
 GUI. I suppose that the best thing would to report this to the wxPython or
 wxWidgets list.

 Does anyone object to changing it to "won't fix" (can't fix actually)?
