The printing stuff is still incomplete, but a cuple of days ago it
has been enhanced. The enumeration of printers seems to be implemented.
It requires libcups (installed on every modern linux desktop).
You should check out the latest SVN sources and build your
own Mono. Have a look at http://mono-project.com/SVN
