I print from gnumeric all the time, but haven't done a graph yet.
I tried a graph on a Debian install and it silently fails unless you

sudo apt-get install libguppi16

Now it works.

It works for me but my level of spreadsheet knowledge is low.

Don Marti                  Even if we don't get DMCA reform, loudly
http://zgp.org/~dmarti     demanding DMCA reform is going to get the
dmarti@zgp.org             injustice of the DMCA in front of the next
KG6INA                     jury.  Make noise.  It counts.
