Bug#582756: libwebkit-1.0-2: Printing issues with Webkit based browsers

Package: libwebkit-1.0-2
Version: 1.2.1-2
Severity: normal

All Webkit based browsers (Epiphany, Chromium, Midori and Kazehakase) included
in Debian unstable do not print any headers and footers (title, URL, page
numbers and date) although the options to print them are set (AFAIK only
possible in Epiphany: printing dialog or gconf options
/apps/epiphany/dialogs/pint_*). Furthermore there is also an issue with
printing margins: Midori does not leave out any margins, hence the printing
function in Midori is absolutely useless most people that do not own a
borderless printer. Chromium does leave very small margins that are not
scalable too and Epiphany does include an option to specify the margins (Page
Properties) but these margins were not respected so that the size of the
margins is always equal.

Primary I thought this were only a bug in Epiphany wherefore I sent a bug
report for the epiphany-browser package. [1] I requested a forwarding of this
bug twice (the first time about two months ago) but it seems that the
developers are too busy. I will request for closing the other bug report now.

It would be great if this problem could be solved before Squeeze will get
released because printing with Webkit based browsers is broken at present.

Best regards
