WiFi Drivers

I have a package of various third-party Broadcom and Realtek WiFi drivers for the k4.9.0-5 and -6 kernels in 32 and 64bit versions.

If someone asks, I will upload it and post a link.

------------------


To run my Broadcom wireless device

I had to add wlan0 entry to /etc/pwf/interfaces

Wlan0="wlan0"
reboot.
Working great.

With all due respect, that doesn't make any sense. The interfaces file just defines the two WIRED ethernet interfaces. It has nothing to do with wireless.

What Broadcom driver are you using? The in-kernel driver like bcma?

Transfered request from [url]viewtopic.php?t=110050[/url]

Here are the steps for your Laserjet. Let's hope that it goes more smoothly.

It looks like your printer is Postscript-capable. HPLIP handles Postscript printers separately - that's why they don't appear in the standard CUPS model list. A generic Postscript printer should be easy to install, but HP has added some enterprise features that require Python.

1. Connect the unit directly by USB. Once it's installed, we can look at networking.

2. Some Puppies, like Tahrpup, already have basic Python. Otherwise, get it here.

3. Install the http://www.mediafire.com/file/snqps3g5pcra4c5/hplip_python_stuff-3.16.5.pet.

4. Install the hplip_scan-3.16.5.pet from the download link in How to Install your Printer in Puppy (if you have not already). You don't need hplip_print for Postscript printers.

5. For Slacko, install the libjpeg_fix-7.1.pet, just to be safe.

6. Install the hplip_plugins-3.16.5.pet attached below.

7. Extract and copy the attached PPD file to /usr/share/cups/model.

8. Run the CUPS wizard. Your printer may be listed as an "HP LaserJet 200 color MFP M276 Postscript", NOT as a "Laserjet Pro".


Many thanks,

The hplip-python-stuff package has moved here.. It has Python as a dependency, which will be auto-installed in the Starter Kit.

There are new, simpler instructions posted above for making Chromium/Chrome/Opera squashfs modules.

These need testing and feedback.

Hi Bill, I tested the setup for to make a chromium squashfs and it worked well.

http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=983662#983662

EDIT:
Quote:
Open the file /etc/apt/sources.list > add "security" to the second line
Code:
deb http://deb.debian.org/debian/ stretch main contrib non-free security

Are you sure that's correct adding "security" ?, I've never seen it that way, there's already a separate line in sources.list for security updates:
Code:
deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security stretch/updates main contrib non-free

Hi Fred:

I'm guessing that I saw those instructions somewhere, tried them and they worked.

But I just checked clean installs of the Starter Kit WITHOUT them and chromium was gettable.

So I removed them from the Chromium post.

Thanks.

Bill

Are you confirming that you got your printer working?
