Default inkscape needs evince for preview on kubuntu

Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: inkscape

Original question on User group mailing list
http://lists.luv.asn.au/wws/arc/luv-main/2008-06/msg00513.html

Inkscape & other gnome applications (dia?) use the "gtk-print-preview-command" property for print preview
defaulting to "evince --unlink-tempfile --preview --print-settings %s %f"
http://library.gnome.org/devel/gtk/unstable/GtkSettings.html#GtkSettings--gtk-print-preview-commandzzzzza

Kubuntu users may not wish to use evince. Could another package be added to provide the gtk-print-preview-command,
either by having evince installed, providing a shell-script wrapper for kpdf or whatever that calls itself evince and does the
required unlink or by updating the user's ~/.gtkrc-2.0-kde or systemwide equivalent to set the property to kpdf or other PDF viewer.

Otherwise please enhance the documentation for Kubuntu so the use of
gtk-print-preview-command in ~/.gtkrc-2.0-kde is more obvious.

Inkscape 0.46 (the current version in KUbuntu 8.04).
