Well, my first diary entry.

I finished a basic version for ghex printing module today and sent it to jaka, he told me it should be in the CVS by tomorrow. It is important for me to get more familiar with gnome-print so thats why I wanted to do it. Also, is very handy to print the hex dump when analyzing output that gets generated from the gnome-print drivers. I used to make a screen shoot of ghex and then print that image !

gnome-print isoLatin characters
I sent the patch to miguel for the 5th time, he just keeps sending it back to me with modifications to make the code look "pretty". I think he is exagerating a bit this time but what can I do, he is the boss !

I am working to make the print-dialog display printers that get loaded from the .gnome/printer-profiles directory instead of only getting the Generic Postcript driver. Right now is crashing and can't even use the Generic Postcript

Not a lot of work has been done for this driver as I have not continue reading the pdf standard ver. 1.3. The thing is 500+ pages, but I am enjoying reading it since it's so well designed / written.
