It's a side effect and should be fixed on 4.6.5 update.
kipi-plugins was in fact built against KDE SC 4.6.5 which was already in updates_testing 
Current work around for you is to update from updates_testing to get an up to date gwenview.

That didn't work. I have gwenview 4.6.5 and kipi common 4.6.5 installed. I think what you are saying is to install kde 4.6.5 also. The update using urpmi --auto-update is 415 packages. What is that going to do to my system??

I upgraded to kde 4.6.5. Gwenview shows plugins. However print assistant is grayed and unavailable. Print Ass't is available in digikam.

Print Ass't is now available in Gwenview. Problem solved. Thanks.

fixed with the 4.6.5 update

Resolution: (none) => FIXED
