building hplip as a module as porteus printing solution

Post#1 by francois » 09 Jul 2011, 13:15

I did build a few simple modules from source, but long ago. So forgive the following naive questions.

Trying to solve my printing issues under Porteus 64-bit, I am trying to install hplip, and maybe build a module from it. The following thread is the receipe I am following:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/ans ... kware_10_2

I got hplip in the form of hplip-3.11.5.tar.gz from sourceforge:

I conclude that libjpeg is not the missing package.

From the above output, is it that I am working with a 32-bit package or something else?

Post#2 by fanthom » 09 Jul 2011, 15:46

hi francois,
libjpeg and libpng are missing in 64bits (i relied on aaa_elflibs package instead) pls add them and continue compilation.

i'll include them in Porteus 1.1 as many people are confused with this setup.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

Hello fanthom. Thanks for giving a hand.

So I added libjpeg-v8a-x86_64-1..txz, but libpng-1.4.2-x86_64-1.txz was already installed. However I installed net-snmp-5.5-x86_64-2.txz

Then ./configure --disable-scan-build went just fine.

Then:

Code: Select all

@francois
you have to compile hplip first and then run hp-check. This produces a log indicating missing packages and the functionality you wont get. You can add the packages you want to produce the results you are expecting.

I compiled the HPPrinter package for 32 bits. It is a patience game, I can tell you. It is posted in the forum under zxm modules.

Thanks for your comments Wread. Finally, Maybe the best solution for me would be to use you 32-bit solution with Ponce's multilib module (32bit multilib packages for 64bit users):

@francois
but the version of hplip you have now is newer than mine; ok, if you don't want to make big things, only letters and so, my version is ok for you.

Last week I tried to print a complicated brochure made in docx, I was using Open Office 3, and the printing was not identical with the screen. I had to translate docx into pdf, then it could make it.

Regards!

i have added hplip, gutenprint, sane + all deps to official 64bit porteus repo. please use PPM (update index first) to download it. Gimp will be shown as a dependency but i believe it's not necessary for printing...

Thus I understand that you encourage me to pursue. And I will do it. But at the same time I will use and test your 32-bit for my Porteus installation on a MSI 340X laptop.

As soon as I manage to get some time.

Re: building hplip for as a module as porteus printing solution
Using PPM, choosing by name there is no hplip, gutenprint, sane packages.

Posted after 49 minutes 10 seconds:
Re: building hplip for as a module as porteus printing solution
Following Wreads hplip package with dependencies:

On porteus 64-bit:
1) Already there:
libnotify-0.4.5-x86_64-2.txz
python-2.6.4-x86_64-1.txz
qt-4.6.2_2d3d3e5-x86_64-1.txz

2) Downloaded thru slackyd:
ghostscript-8.71-x86_64-3_slack13.1.txz
ghostscript-fonts-std-8.11-noarch-1.txz
net-snmp-5.5-x86_64-2.txz
notify-python-0.1.1-x86_64-1.txz
xsane-0.996-x86_64-2.txz

3) Not found or to be built from source:
imaging-1.1.7
Is python-imaging-1.1.7 an analog?

PyQt-x11-gpl needs SIP to be built from source:
http://www.riverbankcomputing.co.uk/sof ... t/download
http://www.riverbankcomputing.co.uk/sof ... p/download

qt4

sane-backends

reportlab

Category 3) packages will represent more work. So if some of you know where to find them or just built them that would be great. If not I will do the job.

hi francois,

"Using PPM, choosing by name there is no hplip, gutenprint, sane packages."
i believe that you have forgotten to update index files as instructed in my previous post.

"On porteus 64-bit:
1) Already there:
libnotify-0.4.5-x86_64-2.txz
python-2.6.4-x86_64-1.txz
qt-4.6.2_2d3d3e5-x86_64-1.txz"
these packages does not come from Porteus 1.0. i would recommend you switching to 1.0 (majority of users done it already) as packages compiled on previous porteus version may cause troubles/incompatibility with recent one.

Cheers

Hum! You are right. I just miss this one. PPM just worked fine, once updated.

Thanks a lot.

Funny, I thought I did. Maybe, it is the case. You get mixed between boxes 32-bit an 64-bit or it is some package of mine that I did not removed (gslapt, for example).


I have managed to install and print under Porteus 64-bit. Even though I get some error message under hp-check:

Code: Select all

bash-4.1# hp-check

...
-----------
| SUMMARY |
-----------
error: 14 errors and/or warnings.

Please refer to the installation instructions at:
http://hplip.sourceforge.net/install/index.html

Done.
bash-4.1# 
Exciting isn't? I will try to refine the thing.

Thanks Wread, I already used them, see your own thread on hp printing:
viewtopic.php?f=51&t=457

Now that the hp printer works, I am trying to get hplip work for my brother printer, maybe you can be of some help:
