New CUPS 1.30 for OS/2 & eComStation build released

August 28, 2007 by Paul Smedley

++ From the VOICE OS/2-eCS News Service http://www.os2voice.org ++

From: Paul Smedley

Hi All,

A new package for using CUPS on OS/2 & eComStation is now available from
http://svn.netlabs.org/ecups/wiki/CupsPort

Download:
http://download.smedley.info/cups-1.3.0-espgs-8.15.4-gutenprint-5.1.3-os2-20070827.zip

New in this release:
1) Updated CUPS to v1.3.0
2) Fixed a Gutenprint bug that stopped the last xx bytes of output being sent to the backend daemon, and on some printers left the print job 'stuck' and the busy light flashing.

Note that it currently isn't straightforward to setup CUPS to be able to print from OS/2 applications, and currently it is only possible to print to printers connected using either the LPD or IPP protocols using CUPS.

However - USB connected printers can be printed to using LPD, if the OS/2 LPD daemon is started.

For example, if you have a USB connected printer with Physical Name EpsonSty, and you start lpd.exe with 'start /min lpd -c -b' your USB connected printer can be printed to lpd://localhost/EpsonSty

Even if you have a USB printer that has current OS/2 printer drivers - I'd _REALLY_ appreciate feedback - CUPS is our BEST (and probably ONLY) chance to get printer drivers for MODERN printers.

There is a eCups mailing list at Netlabs which can be viewed via Gmane at
http://news.gmane.org/gmane.org.netlabs.ecups.devel

Please, please post feedback. A list of printers that Gutenprint supports can be found at http://gutenprint.sourceforge.net/p_Supported_Printers.php3

Further details on using CUPS on OS/2 or eComStation can be found at
http://svn.netlabs.org/ecups or in the readme.os2 file in the download package.

Thanks,

Paul.
