The new XFree86 3.3 comes with Xprt server. Does anyone have example program,
that shows how to program it, with Linux lpr preferably?

There doesn't seem to be any documentation for Xprt right now.  In
particular, it seems very strange that Xprt won't coexist with XF86_SVGA,
for example.  You either run one or another.  Well, suppose I have a word
processor program running under XF86, and the program wants to use the new
X11 graphic printing interface, what then?  You can do it under Windows,
why not X11?

Um, did you remember to specify a display number that doesn't
conflict with your video display?  You can't have two servers on
running on the same machine with the same display number, but you can
certainly have multiple servers, one of which could be a print server.

I can't say I've done anything useful with, but I did write a little
program that queries the print server for the available printers and
that worked fine.

So, where did you get your documentation, oh font of wisdom and helpful
advice?

The API for the print extension is documented in:

ftp://ftp.x.org/pub/R6.3/xc/doc/hardcopy/XPRINT/

Documentation for the Xprt server itself is pretty scarce.  I did
find some helpful hints in:
ftp://ftp.x.org/pub/R6.3/xc/programs/Xserver/XpConfig/

1. How wto configure Xprt ?

Hi !

----

How to configure Xprt (X print server) ? Are there any infodocs
available ?

We'd like to configure Xprt in a per-system basis (e.g. lauched by
/etc/init.d/lp), but it prints as user "root" (we're using the std.
config which prints via "lp") ;-(

----

Bye,
Roland
