x2go.printactions module

Print jobs can either be sent to any of the local print queues (CUPS, Win32API), be opened in an external PDF viewer, be saved to a local folder or be handed over to a custom (print) command. This is defined by four print action classes (x2go.printactions.X2GoPrintActionDIALOG, x2go.printactions.X2GoPrintActionPDFVIEW, x2go.printactions.X2GoPrintActionPDFSAVE, x2go.printactions.X2GoPrintActionPRINT and x2go.printactions.X2GoPrintActionPRINTCMD).

Bases: x2go.printactions.X2GoPrintAction

Print action that mediates opening a print dialog window. This class is rather empty, the actual print dialog box must be implemented in our GUI application (with the application’s x2go.client.X2GoClient instance.

class x2go.printactions.X2GoPrintActionPDFSAVE(client_instance=None, save_to_folder=None, logger=None, loglevel=56)[source]

Bases: x2go.printactions.X2GoPrintAction

Print action that saves incoming print jobs to a local folder.

save_to_folder = None
class x2go.printactions.X2GoPrintActionPDFVIEW(client_instance=None, pdfview_cmd=None, logger=None, loglevel=56)[source]

Bases: x2go.printactions.X2GoPrintAction

Print action that views incoming print job in an external PDF viewer application.

pdfview_cmd = None
class x2go.printactions.X2GoPrintActionPRINT(client_instance=None, printer=None, logger=None, loglevel=56)[source]

Print action that actually prints an incoming print job file.

class x2go.printactions.X2GoPrintActionPRINTCMD(client_instance=None, print_cmd=None, logger=None, loglevel=56)[source]
