OK, scanimage -L gave me the printer name as seen by CUPS which I then added as this config file.
Code:
<uri>hpaio:/net/Photosmart_C4380_series?serial=CN83EF716W051Q?ip=192.168.0.2</uri>
Nothing else as it is a flatbed scanner.
All ok now... thanks for all the help.

G'day rcrsn51,

It's been a long week-end here in NSW and I've been away from town visiting family, so missed seeing your reply (and the now deleted pet attachments) until now.

I cannot recall how I extracted the .rpm driver file - it may have been with one of MU's filer packages - it's been a few months since I did it.

Checking fujixerox again I see there's now a zip file for the linux driver for the C1110. So I may see if I can get that to be better and can provide currently missing or non-functioning files.

I would appreciate being able to obtain the cups-pdf pet if it's not too large for forum attachment. Is it distro-dependant, or could you indicate a download link?

Thanks,
David S.

I stumbled across this thread and actually took the time to read it.
I have a Canon MP390 printer that has the printer partially supported in linux and it works to an extent.
But I had never been able to get the scanner to work with Puppy Lucid 520 until I tried your command line tests on it.
The good news is that I was able to scan a tif format image using the command line.
That printer was not listed in Sane as being compatible as to the scanner working.

Now I know that it will work, am I restricted to the command line for scanning, or can I use Peasyscan. with it?

1. What tests are you referring to?
2. What additional drivers did you install?
3. Have you tried Xsane?

@8-bit: Are we done the discussion about your MP390? You never answered my questions.

Subject description: Re-uploaded Pets downloaded (Cups-pdf & Fujixerox C1110)
 

G'day rcrsn51,
Thanks for re-attaching your fujixerox driver pet (for the C1110 colour laser) and the cups-pdf driver.
I've now got them and can report that in slacko-b5, and with cups-1.3.11, the cups-pdf driver installed and makes nicely sized pdfs.
My fujixerox 1110 printer had worked in slacko-b5 with my old driver/ppd file and cups-1.3.11. But I'll try the colour-laser pet you prepared in the next few days with the other Full Pups I have at present on this computer (where I've generally replaced the 1.4.xx Cups with the 1.3.11 Cups).
I have a lot of Frugals installed that will still have the Cups included by the particular developer so I can see how the fujixerox pet goes with a range of Cups versions.
I'll report back in a few days with details.
Thanks again,
David S.

OK, I have tried this every which way, but I cannot get Slacko to autodetect my wifi printer on my network. Dpup and others can. How might I de-bug this? Any ideas?
BTW, I DO have my printer and scan element working, but only because I know the network address.

Do you have the firewall turned on?

Yes... Ha Ha, using Racy just now.. how would I turn the firewall off? Currently trying to figure out the different syntax for the config file with the earlier CUPS.

I just checked this in Slacko. Turning on the firewall will definitely keep "Find New Printers" from working. Right-click on the tray icon to turn the firewall off.

Great, that fixed it. Still struggling with 'no scanners detected' with Racy though.
Strange it was the firewall, yet in dpup exprimo it finds the printer with the firewall on. Good to resolve it though thanks.

Here is the terminal output from Racy
Code:
/usr/local/peasyscan/scan: line 4: 12047 Segmentation fault      $PEASYPATH/xscanimage-peasy $URI 2>/dev/null


Damn, Racy is difficult! Everything seems to need to be specially compiled for it.

There are not enough hours in my day to look at Racy. But you can try using Xsane from the command line with
Code:
xsane URI

using the URI from Peasyscan.
