Re: fuse and X2Go printing

I don't agree with you, Stefan. Simply redirect the ports is no solution
for X2Go connections over Internet. The job should be converted in PDF
on server or it will be just too big. So as result we will have a PDF
File on server and it not a problem it all to download it to client
system. And it could happens, that on client system you have no printers
or printer system installed at all. So you can just save a print job as
