I just tested it according to the instructions at the bugzilla entry.
As I'm running rawhide, the mentioned yum config doesn't work.
I had to change the yum config to this :
name=gutenprint testing rpms
After that I installed the packages with :
yum install gutenprint gutenprint-cups gutenprint-extras
(I picked the nl ppd's as I'm living in the Netherlands)
Next I started system-config-printer and tried to add
a printer. The gutenprint ppds integrated perfect into s-c-p!
In s-c-p I added a new printer and used the ppd for the
Canon Pixma IP4000. (Actually my printer is a Canon Pixma
IP5200R connected via ethernet, but nmap -O said it is
a Canon Pixmar IP4000R printer).
I tried to print a testpage from s-c-p and the printer performed
it's job. However, the horizontal alignment of the different colors
are wrong. The Y color is positioned just right, but the
colors C and M are positioned at twice the horizontal position
it should be. So if a dot needs to be set at coordinate 5, 5
the Y color is placed at that coordinate, but the C and M colors
are placed at coordinate 10, 5.
Another bug is that the bottom part of the print gets clipped off
the page (bottom margin). This is using A4 paper. I couldn't find
a setting for the bottom margin in s-c-p, so I couldn't fiddle
with this setting.
These issues are probably specific to my printer, but these are
my findings with gutenprint this far. The integration with s-c-p
