Package: evolution
Version: 3.38.3-1
Followup-For: Bug #984944

Dear Maintainer,

I’m rather unhappy to report so late in the release cycle that printing e-mails from Evolution is broken in version 3.38.3, 
which is the candidate for Bullseye.

Trying to print an e-mail to a printer results in a “printer not found” error message, trying to print to a PDF will create 
“file not found”. I can trigger this bug on two different boxes.

Some corresponding upstream bugs appear to be (at least)

* https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/evolution/-/issues/1404
* https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/evolution/-/issues/1141
* https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=202363

The suggested workaround


works for me.

I consider being unable to print mail a serious flaw.

Best regards
