Re: Rawhide woes: CUPS and xpdf

I'm near wit's ends with two very annoying problems with rawhide currently,

Re: Printing: It doesn't work, period. From a x86_64 to a local paralell
printer, or from a i386 notebook over the network (both are PostScript
printers), the only things I can print are the testpage (via the CUPS
control page) or text files (via lpr). If I try to print PostScript of PDF,
CUPS claims the files get queued, are being printed, and then got printed
normally, but nothing whatsoever does show up.

Any clues? Does this work for anybody (I'd be pretty surprised if across
the board breakage of printing didn't start a riot, so...)?

I see the same (x86_64 too!), although with some twiddling I got printing to work from openoffice, hey ooo is i386, I smell a rat here :)

This is because the new Metacity causes problem with fullscreen apps, file a bug against Metacity I guess, or fix all the apps SDL en allegro games still work.

p.s.

I've added comments about this to both bugs!
