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.

The Gutenprint project is pleased to announce Gutenprint 5.2.12. This release adds support for many new printers and other improvements over
5.2.11. Note that the Foomatic data generator and the Ghostscript IJS driver have been removed as CUPS support is ubiquitous and Foomatic is not needed with CUPS.
http://gimp-print.sourceforge.net/
I have one question. The packages foomatic-filters, ghostscript, ghostscript-fonts-std does not need in 07-printing module?

This is under kde5 (plasma) desktop. New python was what was needed. But also, I have been working with a corrupt changes file. :(

But now output error for simple scan

Code: Select all

In kde:

Code: Select all

root@porteus:~# ldd /usr/bin/simple-scan | grep gphoto
        libgphoto2.so.6 => not found
        libgphoto2_port.so.12 => not found
root@porteus:~# 
And installed:
libgphoto2-2.5.10-x86_64-1.txz

So for kde5 missing packages for printing are:
python-2.7.13-x86_64-2_slack14.2.xzm
tcl-8.6.5-x86_64-2.xzm
tk-8.6.5-x86_64-2.xzm

libgphoto2-2.5.10-x86_64-1.xzm :)

Thanks to everyone for the suggestions. Printing is now working for me. I re-installed the latest 07-printing module, re-did the configuration via CUPS and boot in always fresh mode and all is well.

Again thank you for the help. I am now totally transitioned to 3.2.2.

Best regards,

Hi,

Could you please share the printing.xzm? With the one from dl.porteus.org I have error: printer can't create temporary file.

Many thanks!

Hi,

I can print with version 07-printing-i586-18.01.2017.xzm, is working, but I have red error at logout:

Code: Select all

No module named PyQt4.OtCore. Unable to load Ot4/Ot5 sussport Is it installed?.
Please do you have it too? I tested with MATE Porteus 3.2.2

Edit: correct version active with this error is 07-printing-x86_64-03.02.2017.xzm The error appears randomly.

Thank you,
amplatfus
