Printing and scanning for Porteus

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.

If you have some troubles with glib schemas - need to rename 007- to 07- of printing modules.

I reproduced this. If you don't have activated browser - it runs Browser Selection. It's normal.

It's normal too, because:

Code: Select all

Manage Printing = CUPS Web Interface
Print Settings = system-config-printer
ncmprhnsbl, I did a separation for openbox.
Thanks for the info :thumbup:

CUPS 2.3.0 released https://www.cups.org/
https://github.com/apple/cups/releases/tag/v2.3.0

Maybe tomorrow, when Slackware will update cups, I will publish a new version of 07-printing module.

Hardly "normal", more like "insane". Printing and Browsering are totally unrelated.

Ok, understand the Manage Print browser connection. Trying to figure out why a webpage won't print and see that the CUPS "window" is another browser tab. :happy62:

The Printing Troubleshooter says I have to "Enable the 'Publish shared printers connected to this system' option in the server settings using the printing administration tool". Never had to do that before that I recall, and not seeing how to do it now. :crazy:

Using firefox I went to the site, credit card, produced report, pdf format, I clicked on the link, had the option to download or view, I chose view, with default app, which opened report in xreader. I then chose to print it which seemed to work but printer never started printing.

Ok, update.

0901 version.
Jinnamon (Cinnamon 4.2.3 for Porteus 5.0rc1 (Post by Ed_P #73613)
Firefox
Always fresh mode

Using Firefox I go to the site, produce report, it opens in a small Firefox window, I click on the Firefox print option and it prints. I click on the download option and then the view option and it opens in the default app Xreader, I select the print option and it prints.

:good:

But in the Saved Changes mode it doesn't print. Any suggestions on how I delete the old printer config files? :D

I suspect /home/guest/.hplip/hplip.conf and /etc/cups/printers.conf will play a role. :happy62:

-edit-

Yup, the new printers.conf file solved the problem. :Yahoo!:
