    Default Where is kprinter in KDE4?

    Any idea what happened to the kprinter program? Is it not available under KDE4?

    Hmm... I never realized that.

    It shows that I have it installed in Yast but there isn't an actual menu entry for it on my laptop.

    It usually shows up when I go to print something. I have an Hp printer though so it's used in conjunction with hp device manager.

    kprinter is not there in KDE4.2.x
    After reading the feature list of KDE4.3, I am still not clear about the plan.
    Any ideas?

    According to the KDE 4.3 release plan (Schedules/KDE4/4.3 Feature Plan - KDE TechBase), there's some work planned for 4.3, but it hasn't been worked on or at least the plan hasn't been updated.

    I've heard nothing in terms of plans.

    Hi,

    there is an applet "kde4-printer-applet" showing your print jobs, the queue...

    Greetings

    kde4-printer-applet is for showing the status of the printer jobs only.
    kprinter was designed as a proper printing front-end and it was easy to integrate with scripts etc.
