hi Ahau.

Do you plan to add support for Canon printers in next RC version of Porteus (look at my module ip1500.xzm)?

The module ip1500.xzm support these printers:

Hi Blaze,

I would like to include this support in the printer module, but have a couple more questions for you --

1) are you also using the compat-32 module? I see you've got 32-bit binaries in your ip1500.xzm module and some 32-bit libraries, but you don't have the full compliment of 32-bit libraries. If you need the compat-32 module, I'm afraid this is a bit much to include in the standard printing module and may introduce problems as we'd be overlaying core libraries.

2) where did you find the bjfilter-pixmaip1500* packages? I have found the bjfilter-common package here: ftp://download.canon.jp/pub/driver/bj/linux/

but that is several years old and I don't see the ip1500 files.

Thanks!
Please take a look at our online documentation, here. Suggestions are welcome!

Hi Ahau,

1) i used compat32-libraries-2.0-x86_64-1hz.xzm (damn, without this module, my printer does not work) - with compat32-libraries-2.0-x86_64-1hz.xzm all work fine :) don´t include it in in the standard printing module.
I see you've got 32-bit binaries in your ip1500.xzm module and some 32-bit libraries
Yes, i followed the instructions http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1517089 (thanks to francois)

2) Here

BTW in common-2.50-2.src.rpm have this arhive bjfilter-common-2.50-2.tar.gz with source code. Probably, it can to build the module with support Canon IP´s printers for Porteus x64 but it is a fantasy :(

Thanks Blaze. I think what I'll do is include the bjfilter packages but not the compat32 libs. This will introduce a bit of confusion for users as printers using bjfilter will work out of the box on 32-bit but users will need to know that they must add the compat32 libs before their printer will work on 64-bit as you've illustrated. There's not a perfect solution in this regard. Note that many Canon printers (mine included) already work without bjfilter, so this will not affect all Canon printers.

I also saw the "source" tarball and thought I could simply find a way to compile it for 64-bit. However, once you open that up, you find some source code and some precompiled 32-bit libraries; without the source for those libraries, it won't ever work on 64-bit and I'd be surprised to see Canon go back and rebuild for 64-bit at this point. :(

Maybe there could be some solution by comparing 64bit and 32bit canon ppd. I will look at that. :)

Hi Blaze,

If you are printing fine with bjfilter-common and the bjfilter-pixmaip1500* packages along with the .ppd files (which, as far as I can tell is what is in your ip1500.xzm module), why do you feel bjfilter, bjcups, pstocannonbj and libcnbj are all needed? Is there extra functionality missing? I also see that bjfilter-common, bjcups and pstocannonbj all include the file /mnt/loop/usr/lib64/cups/filter/pstocanonbj, and I'm not sure which of these is appropriate to include...any guidance?

Also, please let me know if printing works with the ppd file from your ip1500.xzm module if you remove bjfilter-common and the bjfilter-pixmaip1500* packages and add in your bjcups or bjcups+pstocannonbj. If so, perhaps we can drop the bjfilter-common and bjfilter-pixmaip1500* packages as they are the ones that require 32-bit compat libraries, and stick with the bjcups/pstocannonbj which look like they can be compiled for 64-bit. Thanks!
