As I see it, X2Go printing works quite ok ATM (at least +/-).

IMHO, if someone like Orion (i.e. someone who is not yet one of the  
core devs but has the capability to become one) comes with a patch  
that works by 80%, then let's continue this discussion.

But till then... If people agree, could we please focus on things that  
do _not_ work so well at the moment????


   - MesaGLX software rastering of Unity & co.
   - Appropriate resizing of GNOME-fallback sessions (Xrandr)
   - xkeyboard-config-2.6 breakage
   - Xfixes and KUbuntu
   - weird LibreOffice font renderings
   - multi-session support in X2Go Client
   - integrate new desktop shells (like CINNAMON, MATE, etc.)

The bug tracker contains quite a list of open issues, too:

And also: before inventing a new session handshake protocol for  
printing, we really should start documenting the current status quo of  
all X2Go Client/Server v4 protocols that we have so far. (I surely put  
myself on the list of not-enough-documenting devs, as well.)
