I thing it would be very useful add a new option to the lprinter-qt menu. I was think about a button for "Print this file/s now", for print a file (or several if you have some files selected) in that moment, whitout having to add the files to the list and after that print the list. In Windows there is a "Print" option in the contextual menu of the file manager and for some cases saves lots of time.

Wobei ich hier erst dachte:

[Desktop Action globalinteractive]
Name[de]=Start Drucken: Global Interaktiv

[Desktop Action interactiveeach]
Name[de]=Jede Datei Drucken nach Rückfrage

dass ich die Dateien vorher nicht auf die Liste setzten muss.

Vielleicht ist das besser:

[Desktop Action globalinteractive]
Name[de]=Drucke Liste: Global Interaktiv

[Desktop Action interactiveeach]
Name[de]=Drucke Liste: Druck einzeln bestätigen

Was meinst Du?
