Hi, I was searching a while already for a good way to be able to print pictures using puppy and I came across this HPLIP thing (http://hplip.sourceforge.net/downloads.html). I downloaded the tarbal and extracted it, got into the directory and typed ./configure
This gave me the following:
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/ginstall -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking build system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking host system type... i686-pc-linux-gnu
checking for style of include used by make... GNU
checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output file name... a.out
checking whether the C compiler works... yes
checking whether we are cross compiling... no
checking for suffix of executables...
checking for suffix of object files... o
checking whether we are using the GNU C compiler... yes
checking whether gcc accepts -g... yes
checking for gcc option to accept ANSI C... none needed
checking dependency style of gcc... gcc3
checking for a sed that does not truncate output... /bin/sed
checking for egrep... grep -E
checking for ld used by gcc... /usr/i486-slackware-linux/bin/ld
checking if the linker (/usr/i486-slackware-linux/bin/ld) is GNU ld... yes
checking for /usr/i486-slackware-linux/bin/ld option to reload object files... - r
checking for BSD-compatible nm... /usr/bin/nm -B
checking whether ln -s works... yes
checking how to recognise dependent libraries... pass_all

checking for sys/stat.h... yes
checking for stdlib.h... yes
checking for string.h... yes
checking for memory.h... yes
checking for strings.h... yes
checking for inttypes.h... yes
checking for stdint.h... yes
checking for unistd.h... yes
checking dlfcn.h usability... yes
checking dlfcn.h presence... yes
checking for dlfcn.h... yes
checking for g++... g++
checking whether we are using the GNU C++ compiler... yes
checking whether g++ accepts -g... yes
checking dependency style of g++... gcc3
./configure: line 4954: syntax error near unexpected token `))'
./configure: line 4954: ` (test "X$CXX" != "Xg++"))) ; then'


I think I had the same problem with other progs also, so has anyone got an idea on how I can get HPLIP working?

It's a HD install of puppy (no pup_save or something)

PS: I wanted to include what puppy version I'm using, but can't remember, how do I check this again?

if you wanted an already compiled slackware version, you can get one from :

http://www.software-mirror.com/linuxpackages/Slackware-11.0/ken/hplip-1.6.10-i486-1kjz.tgz

or

http://packages.slackware.it/package.php?q=current/hplip-1.6.9-i486-1

cat /etc/puppyversion will let you know which puppy you're using, & uname -r will say which kernel you've got.

what extra functionality does hplip provide for you? as, if you just want to print, the printer wizard works with hp 845c.
