PostPosted: Wed 02 May 2007, 04:01    Post_subject:  GTKLP 1.2.2 - GTK interface for CUPS  

Install with the button in Petget to install packages on your hard drive.
Made from the debian package - seems to work in Grafpup 104 and Puppy 2.14, so I don't think anyone should have problems.
Requires CUPS obviously.
Has GTKLP and GTKLPQ - printer management and print queue interfaces.
You can't install printers with it - still need to use the web interface.
Seems to be quite old, but if its in the Debian repositories, there must (might) be a reason - I had trouble with a newer package (not sure if it was Slackware or what - it was a long time ago).

Yes, I know the (XDG) menu entries are a bit odd, but I wanted them to be meaningful, and show up next to my CUPS web interface entry and not take up half the screen width.

It can print pdf's and all sorts - checkout the CUPS documentation or http://puppylinux.org/wikka/Printing for extra options (e.g. to print some pages in a file).

Oops - sorry - I uploaded the wrong one. How come 31 people have downloaded it and nobody reported that it didn't install as an alien package except one person in a different thread that I luckily actually looked at again? Laughing
Surely you didn't all install it manually? I've replaced it with the right one now, and also converted the man pages to html.

To disciple,
I 'd download this package and expaded in /tmp, then I copy tmp/usr/bin to /usr/bin. In console I use: #gtklp -> Now the gtklp runs.
Thank you
(There are many files in /tmp of the expanded package. But I did'nt copy all to /usr)

Why didn't you just install it? The package manager can install locally downloaded .tar.gz files. You could even rename it as a .pet and it should install if you click on it. You'll probably want to copy gtklpq as well as gtklp - gtklpq is the print queue manager.
