So was the Generic Postscript always broken in Abiword ?
I'll look for a fix

@ttuuxxx I've just printed OK from Abiword with your CUPS packages. No intervention was required; I choose the 'Generic Postscript' printer and it went to the printer I set as Default in CUPS.

It "just worked" - praise be. Very Happy

It would eliminate some confusion if the words 'Generic Postscript' could be replaced by 'Default CUPS Printer' (or something to that effect), but I have no idea if that's something that you can influence in the compilation, or if it's too deep down in the code to be accessible.

Hey WhoDo could you give me 24hrs before the end of the deadline, I'm working on cups issues, and size so far I've saved around 1.5MB compressed in Ghostscript alone. I'm sure I can get you to the 100MB mark, plus have other things working better, Cups, Icewm, and maybe tcl if I don't run out of time? well its up to you but we aren't in a rush even though I'm feeling it. Most the day I had to spend with my Wife because its Valentines Day, nice day for a deadline anyways, Its like having me in 2 places at once all day, lol

hi nic,

bogofilter seems not to be in (i looked at the packages list of a4). so install from the rep and run again...

Hey nic I compiled libgnomeprint and libgnomecups , installed it, restarted abiword and Now I have 4 selections in the print section of abiword, How many do you have?
Also if you have less than 4,
first go to /usr/lib/libgnomeprint <-- delete folder
then install these 2 pets and restart abiword and see how many you have .
I'm not sure if I have the extra selections because I compiled the packages or because I did the cups setup the way you told me. But its strange the way the libsgnomeprint is setup by default on here because it also has the libsgnomecups in the same directory but when you compile them, they are in 2 directories and not one.

Thanks Jim, I'm a tight schedule right now, I'll look into it when I'm finished the cups/icewm/tcl for the beta, not to put you last, just that I have to focus on the main distro first, with my post above, when your using the older filter do you have 4 selections in abiword like I do for 1 printer? like the picture above? I'm not getting much feedback and could use some response so I know where I'm heading.
I'm almost done thinning-out Cups, I've removed around 1MB so far from the package and I'm just about ready to test it before releasing it.
Right about now I could use a few testers, This whole Beta now thing is a bit over the top, I wished I had more notice, Like a PM or something. Oh well you play the cards your dealt. Thanks again

You want testers to try out your CUPS package on Alpha4 to see if it's ready for Beta1, right? Sure. Me. Let me know as soon as it's done.

Subject description: not printing, but ..
 

backgrounds - desktop and app
.. possibly the wallpapersetter issue may benefit from some looks at it (see MU's post on p6 of this thread). The 'setter on the menu didn't work when last I booted into P42a4 (nada, no gui no interface dead), but as usual setting from a r-click and via the backdrop is simplest (even if /root/Choices/ROX-background.jpg isn't updated .. and there lies the oddness if one doesn't quite get how the bg is set in various wms besides jwm and ice). Not to mention the differences in switching wms via the 'soft' or via prompt (each has advantages but it's sort of odd to have a image-bg and etc in bb).

Very nice add with the murrine - more control of gtk is always appreciated and the new themes are a bonus win-win. Will there be a nice gui configurator for icewm in the beta, rc or final? (finally got around to the prefs and it's a bit much at 1st:) but fairly clear to mod linebyline if one so desires, even as gorgeous as `tis).

I still have a bit to do on icewm and Cups, right now the Cups package is very large, I'll be able to remove a good size chunk but it will need more testing.

If you can get me 3Mb, we'll be all but ready for the RC! Wink Sorry but I had to leave Murrina out because of size problems. Clearlooks is still in of course. I'll give you back Murrina if you can get me the 3 meg! Laughing

I managed to get you 2.954MB compressed, Thats close enough to 3 MB when murrine is only 37kb <--- like you had to leave out 37kb when you overshot by 2mb anyways, so lets do some math.
bloated beta#1 102MB-minus 2.954 = 99.046MB hmmmm how about adding alsaplayer+streamtuner + murrine? ,,,Math time

99.046MB default
00.446688 Alsa+streamtuner
00.03853 murrine
------------
99.55141MB <--------Lots of space Smile well under 100MB limit Smile LOL

Great--thanks! (Hang on, WhoDo!)


Here's the 2 packages for TCL/TK what I've done to them is
Stripped the bins and so files
removed the 'man' pages and thats it, Left everything else, so you can compile etc with them, Smile If you want to remove the dev files feel free to but it doesn't add that much space.
Plus we need them for compiling unless WhoDO is going to put the devs in the devx??

Subject description: Works
 

After loading all the pet's.. you can't rename one of them can you? Anyway...running on very slow small laptop, so it took quite a while to load.

Install procedure found my Canon ip4300 no problem on the USB line...set it up.. tried abi word first to see if would run a test as the main test print from Cups is very long... more on that... NO Canon printer listed. Went to Spread sheet.. it shows the printer and printed a test.. OK Smile. Back to Cups and set definite DEFAULT as the Canon. Still does not show in Abiword. Sad

OK I selected generic Postscript printer and after some time it printed on the printer...slowly

Print looks to me very high quality.. so I suspect set up is now for either 600 dpi or simply postscript. I think it is possible to reduce the resolution and gain speed again.

Conclusion... seems to work the same as what was sent yesterday???? I know there is not time to clean up the thousand questions ask by Cups but looking forward to that Smile. THANKS ttuuxxx and everyone.

ttuuxxx,

With a fresh copy of alpha4, I did the following: Abiword only gave me three options, but one was my printer.

It printed fine.

To get abiword working this is what I did
click the Administration tab
click manage settings
click your printer that is listed
pull down the administrator tab and select 'Set As Server Default'
fill in the pop-up with
user = root
password = woofwoof
then a new window opens and close it and restart abiword and test it Smile
ttuuxxx

Thanks for testing it Guys
