Re: Canon Laser Shot LBP2900 printer: CUPS and CAPT

I apologize for the huge delay! But, I could not get it working after installing the canon drivers (ver 1.6). In fact, the cups interface did not show up canon in its list! So, I guess one or more of the following could have gone wrong: 1. the version needs other packages as well - dependencies - wh...

Re: Canon printers: CUPS and CAPT

"convert deb to xzm" doesn't seem to do anything. I wish you would do it for me.

Re: Canon printers: CUPS and CAPT

Oh my!! You have been so considerate. But I am sad to say that the solution did not work for me. I could even get Porteus to get the default settings from the printer canon 2900b but when I issued a command to print a test page the printer hung up. But, at the same time, I have some leads: I at pres...

Re: Printing

I have a canon 2900b printer and I am quite fascinated by the porteus distro. The canon site has made drivers available in .deb and .rpm format. That's all the information I have. How do I make this printer work with Porteus? This link http://forum.porteus.org/viewtopic.php?f=39&t=822 for a newbie l...

Re: LAMP Server

Everything configured and the system's up and running...successfully!! Only that the phpmyadmin had to downloaded and installed in htdocs and some parameters (such as enabling password-less login) had to be set. Now what remains is choosing (the right) printer and configuring that, which I shall ask...

Re: [Solved] LAMP Server?

Ha! I did request the module in the forums but as expected (for who would want a portable server ?) nobody seems interested. But I am sort of desperate! Just wondering if you could let me know what the default "/path/to/lamp" is. It does not exist for me. Also another request (a major one) : would i...

(L)AMPP module request.

It would be great if there was a ready (L)AMPP module available for us to download. And a further request for it to have an option to be enabled on startup. :)

Re: [Solved] LAMP Server?

Interestingly, I am not able to find rc.httpd! I wonder if I have missed some step. I would like to place a request though. If you can release a (L)AMPP module that activates on startup that would be really useful for me. I hear version 2.0 is likely to be released tomorrow. If that module can also ...

Re: [Solved] LAMP Server?

when I execute this "/etc/rc.d/rc.httpd start" I get a "Permission Denied" reply. What should I do about it? I am in the root console.

Re: An Ebook only version?

Oh! I was looking for a e-book reader mode only on my 800mhz thinkpad (overly outdated) m/c. But I came to know from your reply that porteus is available as of now for the 486..and not for 386 m/c. Thanks for the info. Good day.
