Description Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2013-03-29 17:54:19 UTC
I noticed I don't have printers panel in gnome-control-center because looks like it requires samba (!?), will need to review this in the near future

Reproducible: Always
Comment 1 poncho 2013-04-03 15:35:15 UTC
Even with samba installed the printer panel fails to build.

The samba ebuild doesn't install the pkgconfig files (gnome-control-center needs smbclient.pc)
