Nasty user uca.xml

OK, here we go
I edited the


and added

     <name>Print selected Document</name>
after the Open terminal command

then copied all the translations, which would only be correct for 
English or I guess you could delete those translations

then added

     <command>gtklp %f</command>
after the translations.

This worked for me on my current account and the other account that I 
logged into.
To add other types, not real sure.  Perhaps you could create a custom 
action for pictures/images to see what is the format.

Hope this works for you.
