Smil99... no further progress on wireless printing... I have followed your directions very closely...

I am still confused about the ppet yourprinter.pet instructions... when I insert it into the terminal with my printer name, all I get back is deskjet3510.pet not found!... I guess that you are telling me that the .pet for my printer must be obtained from rcrsn51...

However, even without the printer .pet, the cups website can "find" my printer... I have added it to my pc and it shows up when i want to print...

I tried printing wirelessly and with the usb connection... but, no luck... however, the control screen lights up in both cases... which, to me, means that the printer is receiving some communication from my pc... otherwise, the screen would not be lighting up...

I will occasionally keep working on this issue... but, I wanted to THANK YOU for pointing me in the right direction...

Hi again yr1945,
Searched and found the following pets from rcrsn51's arsenal of printer solutions for you to try Smile .
ppet hplip_print-3.13.7.pet
ppet hplip_scan-3.13.7.pet
After downloading, install them with ppet. That is, in a console, type
Code:
ppet hplip_print-3.13.7.pet

enter, and then
Code:
ppet hplip_scan-3.13.7.pet

After install, reboot and then go to cups interface at
Code:
localhost:631
Open the Administration tab and select 'Add Printer' or 'Find New Printers' and install your printer by scrolling down the list of printers until you find the exact name of your printer. Follow the cups instructions from there which I guess is quite straightforward Wink .
You may have to test USB printing before trying the wireless one.
Cheers.

Subject description: NVidia G210 graphics card needs several Alt-Ctrl Backspace to find screen resolution
 

I use a NVidia G210 graphics card. On booting the xorg-driver hangs. Several restarts by Alt-Ctrl Backspace solves this annoying problem though.

Question:
how can I force the xorgdriver either
1) to repeat the start of the xserver until it finds the correct resolution of my TFT-display.
2) or to use directly the correct resolution (1680x1050).

Any hints highly appreciated.

cinclus_cinclus, is that problem with compiled nvidia driver? You don't need to force driver to load, new Xorg relies on eudev and will choose what's best for your hardware automatically. There can't be conflict with nouveau driver, because nouveau is disabled in kernel configuration. You can add boot code pfix=nox to stop X from starting, or change line X_AUTOLOGIN="yes" in /etc/rc.conf. X -configure will make new xorg.conf file in /root. You can change resolution in that file, copy it to /etc/X11, then start X server with alphaosx.

I have made patch for gpicview that allows setting wallpaper in alphaos directly from this Image Viewer. Button for "Set As Wallpaper"is added in toolbar and in right click menu on right side/bellow "Full Screen" button. Later I will change wallpaper.sh script, so it will not be so root-centric., means that wallpaper choice should be saved in $HOME/.config, not in usr/share/backgrounds.

That's good news rameshiyer, I remember you had some problems with Internet connection previously using Pwireless. Now when those problems are solved I think this is one of, if not the most stable distribution based on Puppy Linux. Very competent people from Arch Linux make packages for us, and what is extremely important we use those packages directly, no need to convert them to pet format, click examine dependencies, and choose mirror manually every time. Everything is fast, bugs free, it looks like mission accomplished.

/usr/bin/wallpaper.sh is slightly changed, wallpaper can be set in two ways - right click on image file in Spacefm file manager, or with gpicview image viewer toolbar or right click. Config directory is now /root/.config/wallpaper/, chosen background will be linked to /root/.config/wallpaper/default.jpg and set from /root/.start when window manager is started.

PostPosted: Wed 07 Aug 2013, 08:10    Post subject: Printing in alphaos9.0  

I had success installing and printing in alphaOS-9.0: HP Photosmart C3190 Ink Jet and Brother HL2130 Laser. My way is the following.

Step 1 -

Code:
pacman -S cups


Put in /root/.start before "sleep 7":

Code:
cupsd &


Copy the attached file in /usr/lib (uzip it).
Then in console:

Code:
ln -s /usr/lib/libsystemd-daemon.so.0.0.10 /usr/lib/libsystemd-daemon.so.0


Reboot.

Step 2 - I had no success accessing by browser cups server but you can install printers in another way.

Code:
pacman -S hplip


Install all suggested dependencies. Then:

Code:
pacman -S system-config-printer


Install with it all suggested dependencies.

Step 3 - Right-click on the desktop, Applications, Preferences, Print Settings.
Add your printers and see if they work.

No, it will just add option to set wallpaper, using imlibsetroot backend, directly from gpicview image viewer.

Actually I'm thinking to add this program http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=87851, after it becomes more stable.

Screenshot of the new wallpaper setter called gwp from Natan F. written in gtkdialog,

and my Control Center written in glade and vala for callback functions.

Now there are 3 ways to set wallpaper: gwp, right click action in spacefm or directly from gpicview. I've modified wallpaper.sh script so they all use same mechanism - imlibsetroot and cwp which reads data from /root/.config/gwp/last.

Control Center reduces number of items in the openbox menu. Make new, or increase size of the current personal storage file, Set wallpaper, Configure firewall or Input devices is now possible only from this Control Center, after openbox System submenu has been removed.

Those are great stuff. How can one try them in V9?
I remember Nathan for his Grafpup of yesteryears. Good to see you around again mate Smile.

Cheers.
