printing-3.2 for porteus 3.2

New features which should be implemented in Porteus; suggestions are welcome. All questions or problems with testing releases (alpha, beta, or rc) should go in their relevant thread here, rather than the Bug Reports section.

@mate users:
1.0 To get access to cups for now:
http://localhost:631/admin/

2.0 print settings or system-config-printer command line Bug confirmed

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ system-config-printer
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/system-config-printer/system-config-printer.py", line 56, in <module>
    import cups
ImportError: No module named cups
Some basic packages for system-config-printer missing on mate compared to kde5. At least:
-notify-python
-pycups
-pycurl

They will be added to printing module soon.

3.0 Please use both printing-3.2-lite-drivers and printing-3.2-lite-drivers

Yes, I have it and all modules is active.

I've never scanned in Porteus. I decided to try to scan (sporting interest).
Are you able to print?
No, because I threw my printer in the trash :)

Have you tried with ahau's 07-printing.xzm (printing-old.xzm) adapted for porteus 3.2:

Currently using the 2 files:

Code: Select all

guest@porteus:~$ ls /mnt/live/memory/images/ | grep print
printing-3.2-lite-drivers.xzm/
printing-3.2-lite.xzm/
guest@porteus:~$ system-config-printer

And the Add Printer function still shows 12 models but none for Officejet.

07-printing.xzm is printing-old.xzm.

Please add gutenprint package with usm. Tell me if it is any better thru CUPS interface. Print settings under mate is missing libraries that are there under the KDE5.

I thought that the most recent version of cups would have been more complete concerning the printer coverage. This is why I need testers with different printers so that I can compare database. I only have brother and epson printers.

I will come up with a revised more extensive and unified printer package (only one printer package instead of separate drivers and cups-sytem-config-simple scan, this weekend.

I suggest doing all print testing on xfce. This way the final module will contain EVERYTHING required for all desktops. Thanks for your help Francois, it helps a lot as this is quite an extensive task.

Sorry for printing-old.xzm mediafire would not load the module. Too big. In fact, printing-old.xzm is 07-printing.xzm of porteus 3.1.

Concerning 32 bit architecture, I am trying to built the 64 bit first.

Sorry for this weekend, too much job on the work bench, I was not able to work even a minute. And for the next two weeks I will be out. :(

That works for me. HP Officejet Pro 8600.

Do I need to keep your two printing-3.2-lite modules when using the 3.1 print module?

The Manage Print item in the Administration menu still doesn't work. It goes to http://localhost:631. I'd recommend it going to http://localhost:631/printers/. Can I change that myself?

Of course :)

Code: Select all

su
toor
sed -i 's|localhost:631|localhost:631/printers|g' /usr/share/applications/cups.desktop
If you want, you can change it manually via mousepad.

Open /usr/share/applications/cups.desktop with mousepad

find

Code: Select all

Exec=/usr/bin/xdg-open http://localhost:631/
replace with

Code: Select all

Exec=/usr/bin/xdg-open http://localhost:631/printers/
save changes.

At the start menu of Porteus Desktop Environment open 'Manage Printing' and check url in your browser.

Thanks Blaze but actually I can't. If I try mousepad doesn't find it. If I try with Nemo it doesn't show it, even with Hidden files set to show.

In /usr/share/applications/ using Nemo I see:

HP Device Manager
Manage Printing
Print Queue Applet
Print Settings

I'll experiment changing them one by one and see what happens. :)

Thanks for pointing me to the right directory. :good:


-update-

:shock:

The Manage Printing file

Code: Select all

[Desktop Entry]
Categories=System;Printing;HardwareSettings;X-Red-Hat-Base;
Exec=/usr/bin/xdg-open http://localhost:631/printers/
Icon=cups
StartupNotify=false
Terminal=false
Type=Application
Name=Manage Printing
Comment=CUPS Web Interface
 :

 :
AND the Mousepad windows's title is:

Code: Select all

CUPS.desktop
So I think I found the CUPS file you were referring to. :Yahoo!:

:beer:
