CUPS + Gutenprint + ESP Ghostscript available for OS/2 & eComStation
June 13, 2007 by Paul Smedley
From: Paul Smedley
Unfortunately a packaging problem crept into the release....
A fix is now available at http://http://svn.netlabs.org/ecups/wiki/CupsPort
An updated zip including the zip is currently uploading and will be available from the above URL soon.
Sorry for the hassle....
Without the fix, an error about invalid device-url will occur when trying lpadmin.
Thanks to Ed and Pete for taking the time to report the problem.
