CUPS .tcz request
« on: August 16, 2017, 11:33:48 AM »
Hi here... long time no see  8)

It's been a while since i last played with this nice distro, but now i need it for a simple project i got.
I have a printer, which i need to connect to an RPI using the PI as a (cups) print server, so hole family can connect and print theyr'e stuff...

Plan is to connect the PI , so when printer is turned ON, the PI is also booted... So anyhing else as this distro won't work.

I have seen some builds and tryes with the CUPS, but in the latest stable version, Cups is not an extension.

Any help ?

Thanks in advance // Jesper.

Why not just search little in the forum, and see that you have
some old build script files to do you own cups.

Why not try to make your own extension.

These example is for release 7.x and for armv7.

Here is the link to the some old build script:
http://tinycorelinux.net/7.x/armv7/tcz/src/cups/cups.build

So how to find these...look at the tcz directory and add src at the end of the url.

Go first at this directory:
http://tinycorelinux.net/7.x/armv7/tcz/

And then just add src at the end, like this:
http://tinycorelinux.net/7.x/armv7/tcz/src/

For example for release 8.x and for armv6 the url look like this.
http://tinycorelinux.net/8.x/armv6/tcz/src/

you could try using the cups extension from the piCore 7.x repo to see if it works with 9.x?

Hi and thanks for helping me out here...

I tried the piCore 6.1-SSH yesterday, and the cupsd is working on this version, and i can load the webinterface and change things, but adding my Canon MG2550s printer won't work. -Actually the cups web-interface dont find anything. -But Canon is also problematic i think, duo to theire closed source policy  :(

According to this, the Canon MG2500 series printer could work (on Rasbian), but i will have to try it out later today, for clearance  :)

With the “Add Printer” screen now loaded, we can select the printer we want to set up. In our case, that is the Canon MG25000 series (Canon MG2500 series) printer. Once selected, press the “continue” button.

So, if the thing will work on Rasbian, the possibility to make it work on piCore is there ofcause... But to be speaking true, i really doubt that i will ever get this Canon printer installed on my ARMv6 PI here... but later today we will know...

Jesper.

Evening...

So with raspberry, it was easy to make work  :)... It took in a ton of dependecies when cups was installed, and the download was more than 400Mb, so making it work on piCore; not sure? -Maybee if only neccessary stuff is extracted?

Anyway, as promised i would tell it is working on arm, and even Airprint was easy to install...

Maybee i will try to make it work on piCore later this year?

Jesper.
