i have a newly installed 2.4.20 kernel, running testing, and have a few
new problems, as well a solution to some of my older ones!
i have installed cups and have a usb printer.
the printer (epson stylus 740, usb) is being seen by the computer (i can
lpr a text file, on settings set on http://localhost:631/admin)
however, i have two problems: i cannot print from either gimp or mozilla
mozilla v.1.5: there is apparently no recognition in the system that i
have requested something to be printed. This doesn't seem to be (only?) a
cups issue as I cannot print to a .ps file either.
gimp v.1.2: ascii characters, not the image are printed from a png file i
used as an example.
I tried a re-installation of gimp-print from source, (by hand, not
debian, having some vague recollection that i did this last time in my
old kernel and it solved the problem) using
and was told:
checking for cups-config... no
checking for socket in -lsocket... no
checking for gethostbyaddr in -lnsl... yes
checking for openssl/ssl.h... yes
checking for SSL_new in -lssl... yes
checking for cupsPrintFiles in -lcups... no
configure: error: Cannot find CUPS libraries (libcups)
So i was unable to solve the problem like that...
Grateful for pointers, will happily provide diagnostics,
