« on: November 15, 2014, 02:33:07 AM »
hi , we have hp laserjet p4515 printer on our network .
I am trying to follow http colon slash slash [removed due to policy violation] slash os slash tutorials slash tiny-core slash printer.html
Can you suggest any tutorial with more details & no need to use debian OS for extracting driver ?

As per the hplip site, this is one of their supported printers, so things should work with the cups and hplip extensions.

if you're using hplip-2.7, I presume you're using tc-4.x?

my testing was done with tc-5.x, so hopefully you'll see the same results...

follow the instructions in the cups info file to open a cups browser window, use the add printer dialogue and you should see your printer displayed. Accept the proposed driver and everything should "just work" (this is what happened to me, albeit with corepure64 5.x).

Modern printers like new HP laserjet's have their own email web service, so I simply send an email of the document to the server email address, seamlessly via HP cloud service and voila! document prints perfectly..

Hi: I use TurboPrint on my Mint and Ubutu PCs. The drivers cost about $29.95 for a home user  license. I bought the .deb files.
Here is my question: Is it possible to extract or modify these .deb driver files to use with TinyCore?
If yes - how?
t(w)o be(ers) or not t(w)o be(ers) that is the question

The first step would be to extract the files from the deb and list them, then you can figure out if they can be used with tinycore or not:

Code: [Select]
$ ar p *deb data.tar.gz | tar zx
