GtkLP print files, manage queue

January 08, 2010 — BarryK
I have compiled GtkLP 1.2.7 for Quirky:

I looked at a GtkLP package created by ttuuxxx:

ttuuxxx has modified /etc/gtk-2.0/gtkrc, setting this:

gtk-print-backends = "lpr,file"

...whereas the default is "file,cups".

Ttuuxxx also has a script /usr/bin/lpr.

Ttuuxxx's package is for Puppy 431 I think, however in Quirky I don't know of any printing problem that requires such a solution. So, my package doesn't change 'gtk-print-backends' and has the default lpr script that comes with the cups package.

Printing note
Quirky uses CUPS 1.3.11. Interesting, it doesn't ever ask for username/password -- I somehow seem to have fixed that.

Compiling note
Quirky has Xorg in /usr/X11R7, but I have got it setup so never have trouble anymore with configuring and compiling packages. They are all able to find the libs. This contrasts with trouble I had sometime in Puppy4.

Hi Barry I modified it that way because Some people couldn't Print from Firefox 3, That was a fix that worked for everybody, Also I just posted the smallest version of X-chat I ever made, it's 247kb pet, over 600kb smaller than Ayttm compressed, wow what a large savings of space. :) ttuuxxx
