Install slx driver for C500n
Posted by: rsturner ()

Installed the C500n driver into CUPS. Things work fine with the test page from CUPS.

However, I submit a two page text file by lp and I get two pages the first blank, the second has the second page of text. I turned on banners in CUPS and now I get the banner, a blank page and the second page of text.

Any ideas?

Get:

http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/tmp/4pages.ps

Do:
$ foo2slx-wrapper 4pages.ps > 4pages.slx
$ nc 192.168.X.Y 9100 < 4pages.slx
Then:
$ slxdecode -dxxx <4pages.slx
$ eog xxx-0?-1.pbm  #Eye of Gnome, or other image viewer
You should see 4 pages:

-rw-rw-r-- 1 rick rick 3911925 Dec 8 18:31 xxx-01-1.pbm
-rw-rw-r-- 1 rick rick 3911925 Dec 8 18:31 xxx-02-1.pbm
-rw-rw-r-- 1 rick rick 3911925 Dec 8 18:31 xxx-03-1.pbm
-rw-rw-r-- 1 rick rick 3911925 Dec 8 18:31 xxx-04-1.pbm


Also, repeat with foo2slx-wrapper -r1200x600 ...

What happens? I don't know because I don't have this printer, and you are the first guinea pig...

From Changelog:
2007-12-08      Rick Richardson <rick.richardson@comcast.net>
        * Modify foo2slx.c:
                SLI_COUNT, 1 (0x1)
                SLI_0x0e, 0 (0x0)  (was SLI_DMCOLLATE)
Don't know if this is the problem...
