However, there are lots of built-in Gutenprint models for Brother that you could have tried instead and avoided using the 32bit official Brother drivers.


Yes, you are right. In slacko64-700 beta I'm using the gutenprint driver of HL2040 Foomatic for my Hl2130 brother laser printer and it works. I did not try other unrecommended gutenprint drivers in xenialpup64.

I finally took /usr/bin/foomatic-rip out of Tahr64 and dropped it into Xenial64. It works with my printer and a Brother foomatic-rip model.

All woof builds have the Brother-HL-2040-hl1250.ppd.

rcrsn51,

First, let me thank you for what you do for printing with Puppy. Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation Exclamation

Any plans to offer this 64BitInstaller-1.0.pet to also work with Xenialpup64?

Xenial64 uses the same basic file structure as Tahr64 - stuff is in /usr/lib.

So whether or not a printer can be installed in Xenial64 through 64BitInstaller will depend on whether the 64bit driver is compatible with Xenial - ie. it has the necessary dependencies.

I suspect that Tahr64 print/scan drivers will also work in Xenial, but I don't plan on doing the testing myself.

The builders of 64bit Puppies need to show an interest in this, which they haven't.

I have tested working in xenialpup64 hplip_print_scan_tahr64-3.16.11.pet for my scanner from an all-in-one HP C3190 printer. I don't use it as printer.

I have solved in a new fresh install the problem with my brother laser printer in xenialpup64-7.0.8.4 using foomatic-rip from tahr64 and the gutenprint driver.

Thanks. I haven't tested the HP printer driver in Xenial64, but it should be OK.

I wonder if any Slacko64 users own printers.

I did some testing in slacko64 700 beta. My hp printer (C3190) works with gutenprint driver and hpcups 3.15.9. The scanner works after installing a hplip_print_scan_tahr64-3.16.11.pet with a little workaround: rename the /usr/lib dir inside the package as /usr/lib64.

You shouldn't have to - that's exactly what 64BitInstaller automatically does for you.

I will check this.

[Edit] I checked and it works correctly. Did you accidentally click-install the PET?

Yes, sorry rcrsn51! I installed the modded pet without 64BitInstaller. Installing the original hplip_print_scan_tahr64-3.16.11.pet
by 64BitInstaller does the trick!

I've made that mistake myself. After a while, clicking on a PET becomes automatic.

If you ever want to try printing to your HP from Slacko64, read the Additional Information about the CUPS fix.

The Hp Photosmart C3190 printer works in slacko64 700 beta installing by 64BitInstaller the hplip_print_scan_tahr64-3.16.11.pet pet and the slacko64-hplip-cups_fix-1.0.pet in first post. I have tested it.

Subject description: Installed in Xenial64pup-7085
 

G'day rcrsn51,

Having decided to try a litter of recent 64-bit Pups on a dedicated partition on my desktop, I've got as far as Xenial64-7.0.8.5.

I downloaded and installed your pet then found a 64-bit driver (.deb) on the OpenPrinting page for my Epson XP-200 printer+scanner.

Ran your pet, dragging the .deb file into the dialog box. Told me it was 'Done' after a few seconds.

I was then able to use CUPS to install the printer via its network connection - it is also plugged in via a usb but I prefer the network route being more 'general' for the home network.

The screenshot is the happy result after printing a test page successfully.

I'm not sure if my one-off try with a Xenial Pup is enough for you to add 'xenial64' to the thread title with total confidence Smile .

I'll get onto other 64-bit Pups and also check out the scanner and report as I go.

Thanks for your continued support.

David S.

G'day rcrsn51,

I can now also confirm your .pet works in slacko64-6.9.6.4 for my Epson XP200 as a network printer.

Same .deb package as driver source, just different browser (firefox in slacko, was palemoon in Xenial64 above) and different Pup button.

I need to find the software for these new-for-me 64-bit Pups that I'm used to in my 32-bit Pups, so it may be a while before I get testing again of your .pet and my printer in other 64-bit Pups.
