Inability to pass install-test and other issues (OS X 10.4.10)
Date: July 31, 2007 02:48PM
Having bought a colour laser printer - the CLP-300N - which costs less than its consumables. I thought I would set it up to work with an Intel MacMini, with Ubuntu and Suse to follow on other architectures.
Install-test cannot find foomatic-rip. I am no wiser after reading the relevant scripts. On the Mac foomatic -rip goes in /usr/local/bin. I tried there and /usr/bin, with a symlink to /usr/libexec/cups/filter. No luck.
So I side-stepped install-test, ran the other install scripts, and ended up with an installation that could be configured via Mac Printer Setup.app .
This does not print. The Samsung OEM PPD does, when reintroduced and reconfigured. cupsd was restarted appropriately.
1. A suggestion about the foomatic-rip issue would help
2. Do I need to load firmware ? la HP printers?
3. If so, where do I find such firmware for the CLP-300 series?
