Slackware :: Cups / Sane Server System Requirements

Jul 1, 2011

I have a 2010 model laptop running slackware 13.1, and after setting up a udev rule for my epson rx700 printer/scanner, this laptop can print to the rx700 without problems, and I can scan straight into gimp with xsane... I can even share the printer and scanner over my local lan.however when I pack up my laptop and hit the road, the other folks in the house cannot print or scan over the network anymore, so I tried to get an older desktop we have laying about to be the cups / sane server instead of my laptop.I tried a Dell Dimension 8300, and a Dell Optiplex GX 260. Both have USB 2.0 however, on fresh slackware 13.37 installs, even after the udev rule, neither old computer is successful finding the scanner with sane-find-scanner, although it is listed in output of lsusb.

does anyone know if there is a workaround on these older machines, or have there been some hardware changes in the last 8 years that the machines haven't undergone, and I should give up trying to get one to be cups/sane server for rx700..

Slackware :: Slackware64 /usr/lib /usr/lib64 / Continue Patching All These Makefiles That Have Libdir=/usr/lib Hard Coded To Keep A Sane System?

May 21, 2009

I've never used a 64bit system set up this way. They've been pure 64bit with everything simply in /usr/lib with no /usr/lib64. IIRC That's how Arch used to do it.

My question is, should I continue patching all these makefiles that have libdir=/usr/lib hard coded to keep a sane system? What are the side effects of not putting all the libs in /usr/lib64? These are for the sources that don't use or follow --libdir= and LDFLAGS="-L/usr/lib64".

Can I rm -rf /usr/lib then ln -s /usr/lib64 /usr/lib and still have things work. There are a couple of files in /usr/lib now {codecs/ crda/ libsyslinux.a rpm/ sendmail siconv/ syslinux/ terminfo/ trn/} which came from a stock install.

There are not any 32bit programs I need to run. If I did, that's what KVM is for

PS. I want some Slackware64 Swag!

Slackware :: Sane Not Reading Dll.conf?

Jul 9, 2010

I'm trying to setup an Epson perfection 4490 photo scanner in Slack 13.1. I've got the appropriate iscan and epkowa driver and firmware. However it is not working: sane-find-scanner produces:Code:found USB scanner (vendor=0x04b8 [EPSON], product=0x0119 [EPSON Scanner]) at libusb:001:004but scanimage -L finds nothing. After battling a lot with dll.conf and epkowa.conf I decided to run strace scanimage -L and to my shock it never tries to read dll.conf, instead it goes straight to read xerox_mfp.conf and does not try to read any other conf file in /etc/sane.dHas anyone come across problems with sane in 13.1 (or 13.0 as I tried this before upgrading with the same results)?

Slackware :: Sane - After Upgrade To 1.0.22 Cannot Find Scanner

Mar 24, 2011

I have a Samsung SCX-4200. It was working pretty good with sane 1.0.21. I'm using slackware current, keeping updated (almost) every day. On the Mon Feb 28 update sane was updated to sane-1.0.22-i486-1. After that update xsane (as user) cannot find my scanner. I was able to find it running sane-find-scanner as root, but scanimage -L (as root) wasn't able to find the scanner. Now I have updated to the last sane package, named sane-1.0.22-i486-2 . In the changelog I can see that this rebuild should add libusb support.

In fact, now there's no way to find the scanner. And now also sane-find-scanner (as root) is no more able to detect the scanner, also running the command as root. I've tried running sane-find-scanner -v -v and scanimage -v -v -L but I can't get no useful hints. I have checked the sane configuration files but always seems good (the row with USB IDs is not commented in the backend file, which is xerox_mfp, and the backend is listed in dll.conf).

Slackware :: 13 And CUPS / Cannot Get CUPS To Change From 'Letter'?

Feb 12, 2010

I have installed Slackware 13 on one of the hard disks of my computer in order that I can get it working properly before changing over from 12.2.

My main problem is that I cannot get CUPS to change from 'Letter', which I presume is an American size, to A4, has anyone else had experience of this problem?

Slackware :: Getting Epson CX5000 Scanner Working With Sane?

Mar 30, 2010

I have been given an Epson CX5000 3-in-1 that I only want to use the scanner part of (I have a laser and hate buying ink). The scanner works, tested under windoze, but xsane and scanimage -L fail to find it. But, lsusb does:
$ /sbin/lsusb
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 04b8:082b Seiko Epson Corp. Stylus DX5050

I saw a post about it under ubuntu that you had to modify
Which doesn't exist on my Slackware 13 install. I hope this Epson runs faster than my Canon FB630U, which takes almost a four minutes to scan a 5x6 photo and forget scanning an 8.5x11 page (go take a nap).

Debian :: Cups Not Starting With The Server / Getting Error Unable To Read Configuration File '/etc/cups/cupsd.conf' - Exiting?

Feb 24, 2011

cups does not start with the server. When I try to start from the terminal I get the error message

cupsd: Unable to read configuration file '/etc/cups/cupsd.conf' - exiting!
cupsd: Child exited with status 1!

The log files show nothing. cupsd.conf exists. It is user - root and group - root with permissions set at 0644.

My interpretation of this is that the program is not launching from either boot or terminal for a fundamental reason. I do not quite see what that reason is .

Ubuntu :: System Requirements For 10.04 - Speed Up Performance?

Mar 6, 2011

I have an older PC running Ubuntu 10.04, and the system is slow, especially with Firefox running. I recently upgraded to 2 gig memory, but it didn't help. I have plenty of space on my hard-drive, using only 30 gig of 80 gig. My CPU is Intel Celeron 2.40GHz. I have broadband, and the speed seems good. What are the system requirements for Ubuntu 10.04? Any tips for speeding performance, esp on Firefox? I used to do a defrag when I had Windows; is there any need to do that on Ubuntu also?

Server :: Proxy Server Software Based On Simple Logging Requirements

May 18, 2010

we need to log web access of a certain set of users for analysis. We decided to setup a proxy server which just logs all the requests but does not do anything else like caching/access control etc.All users will be using a fixed set of computers and hence we can redirect their requests to the proxy. I came across Squid, but found it to be too heavy for our requirements. Is there any other proxy-server software that is good enough for what we want or is Squid the only way?

Debian :: Can't Start CUPS Server With /etc/init.d/cups Restart "file Not Found"

Jan 21, 2010

installed lenny and am trying to install brother dcp7010 again:

1) i can't start CUPS server with /etc/init.d/cups restart "file not found", there is a cups@ link in /etc/init.d.

2) when i install dcp7010 cupswrapper

dpkg -i
it ends with
" lpinfo: Verbindung zum Server nicht m�glich: Verbindungsaufbau abgelehnt
lpadmin: Verbindung zum Server nicht m�glich: Verbindungsaufbau abgelehnt"
(connection to server not possible, refused)

3)[URL] doesn't work.

4)foomatic-gui can't find the installed dcp7010 lpr-driver

brdcp7010lpr-2.0.1-1.i386.deb, (a couple of days ago it did)

This is frustrating because it worked in etch and worked for awhile in lenny. The dcp7010-scanner does work.

Fedora Installation :: System Requirements - What The Minimum Graphics Card Spec Is To Enable GUI

Apr 18, 2011

Trying to make sense of this Linux stuff, by trying to install Fedora 14. First impressions are it?s a parallel universe populated by those who hark back to the era of Windows 3.1 / DOS, and earlier, where command line instructions and messing around with .ini files was all the rage. Which might all be a great little hobby to go back to, being more 'at one, and intimate' with my machine and learning a new skill to take some pride in, but all it means so far is my patience is being really tested by needing to learn it all from scratch!

The installation guides seem to suggest that if your graphics card is not good enough then the installation will default to the text based one. Which is what happened in my case. I can get to the login prompt after the installation, but that's the point where it gets really frustrating in having my machine think it?s a mid 1980s Commodore 64 or something!! Never mind PEEK and POKE, I just want to THUMP or KICK it.

I read somewhere I should start X Start to start the GUI. Nope, x start or xstart doesn't do anything. I then read that only works if I had installed X Windows. Can't find where or how I install X Windows though! I then read, as I say, things default to purely text if your graphics card is not good enough, but then I can't find anything about what the minimum spec is. Seems odd that a card that can cope with Windows can't work with a system as basic as linux/fedora with its frustrating command line-intensive way of working.

- what the minimum graphics card spec is to enable GUI?
- how to install this X Windows thing?

OpenSUSE Network :: Lamp Server With Specific Requirements For PHP

Oct 23, 2010

I'm needing to stand up a Lamp server for a SugarCRM migration. I've been told I need to ensure php 5.2 on the box along with ensuring several mod's are installed as well for php and apache. I was planning on using the lamp provided from xampp (apache friends) but they're current build is using PHP 5.3, any suggestions on how to get around it? If I have to build the whole thing from several packages (apache, php, mysql) then no problem, but I really like the myphpadmin page that comes with the xampp installer.

Server :: Bind9 Config Files: Leading Whitespace Requirements?

Apr 19, 2011

Is leading whitespace significant in bind9 config files? This reverse lookup file (/var/chroot/bind9/etc/bind/zones/ did not work; /var/log/messages had "zone has no NS records".Inserting 3 spaces before IN in the NS line fixed it:


; IP Address-to-Host DNS Pointers for the subnet
@ IN SOA CW8vDS.localdomain. hostmaster.localdomain. (
2011041901 ; serial
8H ; refresh


Reading the man pages and netsearching, I did not find anything about indentation requirements except for "This is usually indented for readability, but the indents are required syntactically" here.Although the above file works, named-checkconf reports an error in it:


root@CW8vDS:/var/chroot/bind9/etc/bind/zones# named-checkconf syntax error near ';'

but named initialisation does not log any errors or warnings in /var/log/messages when processing this file except "/etc/bind/zones/ no TTL specified; using SOA MINTTL instead".

Slackware :: Printing From Laptop To Several Cups Servers?

Jan 17, 2010

I connect my laptop to several different networks and need to print in each of them when I am connected there. In the past (ie 12.2 and earlier) I solved this by running a cups server on the laptop and having it poll the appropriate cups servers in each network.

I was thinking that perhaps in 13.0 I could bypass having the cups server on the laptop and that KDE would "see" the various cups servers available. However this does not seem to work...

Slackware :: Running CUPS By Default Necessary To Print?

I've been running Slackware 13.37 since RC1 (so I'm a relatively new Slacker!). I set up CUPS to start as a default service during my install process. I print once in a while, but my computer is not a print-server per se. Do I have to have it auto-started in order to just be able to print on-demand (like, from LibreOffice or Okular)?
