foo2zjs on Mandriva 2007 spring
Date: July 29, 2007 04:00PM
I had previous success with Mandriva 2006.0 and 2007.0. I am running 2.6.17-14mdv and got the foo2zjs.tar.gz. I ungzipped cd and ran
[root@localhost foo2zjs]# make uninstall
it removed appropriate files...
[root@localhost foo2zjs]# make
# ... OK!
cd icc2ps; make all
I'll spare you the verbose hash, but make ran wget, grabbed the tarballs and installed them properly.
I ran ./getweb 2600n --no problems.
I ran make cups [it restarted CUPS but I restarted again anyway with 'service cups restart']
I then ran printerdrake and this is where the errors begin.
I pointed the GUI to the correct IP address [yes, I am sure of the IP address] and used port 9100. I selected the ppd from the hp list [2600n] and i got the following error.
lpadmin: File device URIs have been disabled! To enable, see the FileDevice directive in "/etc/cups/cupsd.conf".
A review of this file showed no reference of this directive.
I browsed the list for tips and saw hplip should be avoided. I ran
rpm -qa|grep hplip and found it installed but I can't uninstall hplip-hpijs-1.6.12-2mdv2007.1.i586 without breaking printerdrake and subsequently drakconf.
This is a new install of the latest from Mandriva free.
Anyone have a suggestion, I'd appreciate it.
