Add a printer button to the navigation toolbar

Hi all,

I have filed a ticket for adding a printer button to the navigation toolbar.
https://github.com/matplotlib/matplotlib/issues/670
I am interested in a wider response.

Any further comments ?

Adding a button is easy… Adding cross-platform printer capability is not. The only way I envision it could happen is if the GUI toolkits have some sort of printing API. We already can convert to postscript.

A customization of the navigation toolbar is possible. I have used the qt4 backend.
However the quality of the print-out is poor using QPrinter. Moreover the frame including the navigation toolbar is printed.
How can I omit that ?

How can I improve the quality of the hardcopy.
I have attached the program.

Any hint would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
