Hey Henrik,

This printer prints nearly perfectly with apsfilter and regular, base, lpd/lpr 
installed.   The only problem is the margins, and I can fix that for the most 
part.  I think it's a problem with cups, personally, but I never see anything 
interesting from debug2, but I'll try again.  I'll post tomorrow or the next 
day.

Thanks.

Just wondering - why do you want to use CUPS? 

I did exactly the same thing as you - installed it because it would be 'easy to use'
then spent a fortnight configuring it.

CUPS in my experience is one of the very few UNIX programs that breaks after a while -
everything else might be a bit tricky to configure, but once it works, it keeps 
working.
CUPS randomly decided to throw away jobs, until I threw *it* away in disgust.

ESR seems to agree (NB: I am in no way a fan of him, but the article struck a few 
chords)

http://www.catb.org/~esr/writings/cups-horror.html

Despite all this I am still thinking of trying to reinstall it this week - I don't know
why...

Cups installs /usr/local/bin/lp and /usr/local/bin/lpr and leaves

If you want to verify you have a properly running Cups before you do

It ought to work.

Hey Peter,

I tried the web interface, and that's what's not printing test pages.  Do I 
need to move these execs before I try to print a test page? 

Also, CUPS seems to have munged up my other printer installations pretty 
badly, and I don't know what to do to get them back.  I guess I'd rather get 
CUPS working right anyways.

Not so good - I generally find this works even when the /usr/bin

Probably because it overwrites /etc/printcap

Have you tried testing cups by using the cups binaries on the command 
line specifying the full path?

#/usr/local/bin/lpr /etc/hosts
should print. If it doesn't, you might get a useful error message.

Hi,
   I hope this would work for you.. I have recently
installed my printer and be able to print successfully
using CUPS and gimp-print drivers.

What I did was:

1. Install the latest cups printing daemon and
gimp-print or whatever port you will need to drive
your printer(I don't know if you still need those
drivers though) some printers doesn't need one
In my case I've installed cups-base-1.1.20.0

2. cd to /usr/local/etc/rc.d then
 'cp cups.sh.sample cups.sh'

3. execute 'cups.sh start'(also, the next time you
boot, you will see that cups daemon will automatically
be started)

4. go to http://localhost:631/admin then try the web
interface configuration of cups.


That's it!
Goodluck

Re: First time CUPS user, config problems?

2004-07-17 Thread Bill Schoolcraft
At Sat, 17 Jul 2004 it looks like Peter Risdon composed:

 Cups installs /usr/local/bin/lp and /usr/local/bin/lpr and leaves
 /usr/bin/lp and /usr/bin/lpr in place. Back these up, symlink the cups
 versions into their places and try again.


If I'm not mistaken, cups does install lpr and lprm and lpq . but
I believe they have the following names

lpr.cups
lprm.cups
lpq.cups

In the past I've renamed the original files that were there already:

mv lpr lpr-ORIG
mv lprm lprm-ORIG
mv lpq lpq-ORIG

Then I create the symlinks so any programs looking for the original
names, and alot do, find the cups version through the re-direction that
occurs via symlinks.

ln -s lpr.cups lpr
ln -s lprm.cups lprm
ln -s lpq.cups lpq

Of course this is done inside the directory where the files reside.

 If you want to verify you have a properly running Cups before you do
 this, use the web interface (http://localhost:631) to print a test page.
 It ought to work.
 
 HTH
 
 Peter.
 
  Hey Peter,
 
  I tried the web interface, and that's what's not printing test pages.  Do
  I need to move these execs before I try to print a test page?

 Not so good - I generally find this works even when the /usr/bin
 binaries are still there.

  Also, CUPS seems to have munged up my other printer installations pretty
  badly, and I don't know what to do to get them back.

 Probably because it overwrites /etc/printcap

   I guess I'd rather get

  CUPS working right anyways.

 Have you tried testing cups by using the cups binaries on the command
 line specifying the full path?

 #/usr/local/bin/lpr /etc/hosts

 should print. If it doesn't, you might get a useful error message.

 Peter.

  Thanks!


If I try that, it shows up in the 'manage jobs: completed jobs:' page, and I 
get the following error:

Error: 

client-error-not-possible

Thanks

k, I had to create the /var/log/cups directory, now it seems to be logging OK. 
I've turned up logging to debug level 2, as you suggest, and it looks greek 
to me.  I'm still getting the following error in the web interface when I try 
to print;

Any ideas?

First of all, verify that you've got both cups-base, cups-lpr and 
cups-pstoraster installed on your system. Do a pkg_info | grep cups to 
do this. If all these three packages are installed, please provide the 
last, say, 10 lines of your /var/log/cups/error.log.
