Remember when you could setup a complex document processing chain in kprinter? I call this the good old KDE 3 times. Using this feature it was possible to chain commands like psnup, psselect, pdftops etc. together in order to print a document exactly the way you wanted to. A feature missed on windows and a major selling point for KDE to me.
Well, KDE 4 has no such feature any more. In fact there is a minimal feature to print multiple pages on one page, but this feature is broken. It prints the pages completely wrong and overlapped. This was the reason I wrote this service menu.
Using this service menu you can print 4 beamer slides (PDF or PostScript) per page already sorted so you get the first page on top when you just hit print. It's a shame that I had to write a service menu for that and that the awesome document processing framework of KDE 3 got dumped. I ask: Why-oh-why is this? I don't consider KDE 4 final without this feature.
