[Gtk-sharp-list] Printing with Gnome on Win32

Paco created an experimental combined Mono 1.11 and GTK# 2.4 win32 installer which includes gtk+ 2.8 and GNOME 2.12 binaries. It includes libgnomeprint and libgnomeprintui too.
Note: there is an exe and 4 bin files you must download. Novell Forge does not allow files greater than 50 MB, so it had to be split up. The README has more info.
The gnome-sharp.dll assembly includes support for GnomePrint#.
I had to modify the etc/mono/config file:
<!--<dllmap dll="cygwin1.dll" target="libc.so.6" />
<dllmap dll="libc" target="libc.so.6" />
<dllmap dll="libintl" target="libc.so.6" />
<dllmap dll="libxslt.dll" target="libxslt.so" />
<dllmap dll="libmySQL.dll" target="libmysqlclient.so" />
<dllmap dll="odbc32.dll" target="libodbc.so" />
<dllmap dll="oci" target="clntsh" />
<dllmap dll="db2cli" target="libdb2_36.so"/>
<dllmap dll="msvcrt" target="libc.so.6"/>
<dllmap dll="MonoPosixHelper" target="libMonoPosixHelper.so"/>
<dllmap dll="sqlite" target="libsqlite.so.0"/>
<dllmap dll="sqlite3" target="libsqlite3.so.0"/>
<dllmap dll="libX11" target="libX11.so"/>
<dllmap dll="libcairo-2.dll" target="libcairo.so.2"/>-->
<dllmap dll="rsvg-2" target="librsvg-2-2.dll"/>
<dllmap dll="gnomecanvas-2" target="libgnomecanvas-2-0.dll"/>
<dllmap dll="gnomevfs-2" target="libgnomevfs-2-0.dll"/>
<dllmap dll="gnomeprint-2-2" target="libgnomeprint-2-2-0.dll"/>
<dllmap dll="gnomeprintui-2-2" target="libgnomeprintui-2-2-0.dll"/>
I had to comment a lot of lines, and I added gnomeprint and gnomeprintui.
In a Mono 1.1.11 command prompt, cd to /samples/gtksharp-2.x/sample and type this to build the PrintSample.cs:
mcs -pkg:gnome-sharp-2.0 PrintSample.cs
And to run:
LIke Ivan said, you may get a mirror image of what should have printed. However, its a start.
Thanks Ivan and Paco.

As the author of the Win32/GDI module of libgnomeprint, I can say that
libgnomeprint supports Win32 officially. However, it's still quite
buggy. You can submit any bug report to bugzilla.g.o.

Building libgnomeprint(ui) is not really difficult if you know how to
build hello-world for gtk+/win32. Actually, libgnomeprintui is more
solid than libgnomeprint on the Win32 platform as libgnomeprint still
has a well known transformation bug ATM. You can download a copy of
Gnumeric/Win32 from  (which is the major user of libgnomeprint and
libgnomeprintui on Win32) and open a .xls file with charts and texts.
The worst case is that you will get mirrored page/text. (You can also
get the binaries of libgnomeprint in the package)
