PostPosted: Sat 23 Jan 2010, 04:04    Post_subject: Printing doesn't work for me - any idea?  

Hi everybody

i tried to install my two networked printers in Puppy Stardust 005 and whatever I do, as soon as I try to print the test page I get the status message from CUPS:

"/invalidfont in findfont"

The printers are a Laserjet P2055DN and an OfficeJet 7410. I have downloaded the hpliplite pet-package from the repository so the drivers are not the problem. BTW: doing the same installation in Official Puppy 4.3.1 as well as the latest LHP is no problem - the test pages print o.k.

Any idea what might be missing in Stardust in order to make printing happen
Thanks - Bernhard

Hmmm..

Could that be to do with removing type 1 fonts? I didn't try printing yet, but may do so...

- Startmount updated

Trio
- Updated JwmThemeMaker
- Updated You2Pup
- Kept youtube icon, but changed menuicon to get right alignment. I still think 12 kb is way too much. It might go next time I get a shrinking delirium Twisted Evil

Welcome to us! Smile

Hmmm...... How could we detect which font this is? Probably no terminal output?................ Hmmmmmm

Well if somebody could point me in the right direction I'm pretty confident that I will be able to find out what font is missing.

Is there an error log or trace file that is generated that tells me exactly what font is missing. As I had never problems with CUPS before (neither on Ubuntu nor Fedora) I'm pretty much lost here especially because Puppy does several things different - I'm pretty new to Puppy but this is already clear to me Smile

Thanks - Bernhard

What is removed in Stardust compared tp Puppy 4.3.1 is:
Code:
rm /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc/1*
rm /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc/5*
rm /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc/6*
rm /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc/7x13*
rm /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc/8x13*
rm /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc/9x15-*
rm /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc/9x18*
rm /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc/courB0*
rm /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc/courB10*
rm /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc/courB14*
rm /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc/courB18*
rm /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc/courB24*
rm /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc/courBO*
rm /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc/courO*
rm /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc/courR*
rm /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc/helvB08*
rm /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc/helvB10*
rm /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc/helvB14*
rm /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc/helvB18*
rm /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc/helvB24*
rm /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc/helvBO*
rm /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc/helvO*
rm /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc/helvR08*
rm /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc/helvR10*
rm /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc/helvR14*
rm /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc/helvR18*
rm /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc/l*
rm /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc/m*
rm /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc/s*
rm /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc/t*
rm /usr/share/fonts/default/Type1/*

I have attached the complete set of bitmap fonts for Puppy 4.3.1.
If you want to help us with some testing, it should be doable to find the missing one. Note that to install a font you maybe need to run this small script:
Code:
#!/bin/bash
rm /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc/fonts.dir
rm /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc/fonts.scale
mkfontscale /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc/
mkfontdir /usr/X11R7/lib/X11/fonts/misc/



Thank you
Sigmund

Dear Sigmund

let me describe what I did - so maybe you can spot any mistake from my side - and what happened:

I'm running Stardust off an USB stick with a pupsave file. I took your file and dropped all fonts in the indicated directory. I then regenerated the fonts.scale and fonts.dir files and restartet my pc. Everything came up fine, the fonts are still there. I then added the printer in CUPS administration and tried to print the test-page.

Well, same result as before. CUPS administrations tells me:

Printer State: processing, accepting jobs.
"/invalidfont in findfont"

Let me know if you can spot something that I did wrong, otherwise this has not solved the problem.

Thanks - Bernhard

Try printing a document. No matter what I do with my network printer, Stardust wont print the test page, but documents print just fine.

Same on my system (cups/samba); docs print fine


Fonts: Loading msttfonts into /usr/share/fonts/default/TTF/ works well.

Success - Thanks for the hints

What was missing are the Type1 fonts mentioned couple of e-mails above. I took a original puppy 4.3.1, copied all type1 fonts to the stardust installation and now my printers are working.

Thanks to everybody for their help

But I won't replace ALL those fonts. I want to replace the one that's missing.
