I sent this to cups-bug too... ---------- Forwarded message ---------- From: Henry Lenzi <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Date: Sep 9, 2006 2:30 AM Subject: Can't find foomatic-rip on FreeBSD 6.0 To: [EMAIL PROTECTED]
Hello -- I am trying to get CUPS rolling on a FreeBSD 6.0 with a HP Deskjet 840C printer. I have installed cups and all "foomatics" from ports, as well as some other filters. I think there might be a bug. At first CUPS did not work because of the bug reported in: http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-ports-bugs/2006-July/094331.html Unable to open parallel port device file "/dev/lpt0": Permission denied The bug fix in that report corrected this problem, and I guess FreeBSD 6.1 won't have that prblem anymore. The problem that remains now, however, relates to foomatic-rip. The printer is detected (Device URI is "parallel://dev/lpt0"), but when I try to print the test page, I get the following message: hp (Default Printer) "/usr/local/libexec/cups/filter/foomatic-rip failed" I have no idea as to what this means, since it seems the path is correct. Furthermore: machine# ls -l foomatic-rip lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 27 9 Set 04:29 foomatic-rip -> /usr/local/bin/foomatic-rip Any help is greatly appreciated.
