What is the standard way to use RAW?

As I understand it, you should use RAW in situations where another computer is responsible for formatting the print job to be compatible with the target printer. For example:

You are sending a print job from a Linux client to another Linux machine running a Samba server. The client will set up its printer as RAW because the server machine will do the formatting.


I see, thanks.

Have you tested the "official" PPD? When I looked inside, it says "for Macintosh only". So I would like to know if it works for you.

If it doesn't, I have another one from openprinting.org that I would like to test.

PostPosted: Mon 03 Sep 2012, 22:47    Post subject: hsfmodem driver for kernels 2.6.31 and higher  

Barry,
I have revised the hsfmodem support components and updated source code to bring HSF modem functionality to puppies based on kernels 2.6.31 and newer, using instructions from an ubuntu forum. (I expect to add details soon.)

The driver itself is in its kernel-designated package. The puppy infrastructure and code-release related parts are in a package intended for inclusion in woof (at some point). I hope to automate the building of the driver itself, to simplify creation for the various kernels. That is, unless you feel that is not necessary because you already have your own way to do that.

Attached are the two dotpets and the updated hybrid-coded source tarball. Users can add HSF modem capability by installing the two dotpets.
Richard

Update: Re-uploaded the source package, with build residue removed, after download #5.
Update: Re-uploaded both pet packages (after download #6), to remove an extraneous file and simplify setup.

UPDATE 9/10/12: Removed the 'sync' commands that appear to have caused unreliable detection. Uploaded corrected package after download #12. Also, please uninstall the previously-suggested "delta-3c" fix, which turns out to be an incorrect solution.

UPDATE 9/11/12: Corrected generation of conflicting-module blacklist, uploaded after download #1. This should be the last of the updates, until someone reports a problem with this. Thanks for your patience.

Booted straight to the desktop and network automatically connected. With Wary and Racy 5.3 it was a no go on this machine, due to the graphics card and network card.

Maybe 4 calculators are just one too much of a choice.

Really looking great!

A much faster download is possible by avoiding ibiblio site

Download precise distribution from Netherland's site

Hi Barry

First impressions are really good - seems snappier than the previous beta’s, especially first setup, if that’s possible.

No obvious problems noticed so far - this looks and feels very good.

Thanks again for all you do - very best regards - Ray

Beta 5 OK here
PPM faster - no Opera which I needed, downloaded the sfs from Terry here:
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=500488#500488

Good thing about the PPM is set firewall on
and then you restart x to run it.
So the firewall is up before connection.

Also got sound on first boot up, hopefully it will be persistent (I have a two sound card system)

5.3.91

Sorry to say but the same problem about 'WiFi' not working persists as I posted on pages: 22 & 29 of this thread (at least with the rt2800usb)!

Beta 5 OK here, booted just fine on my IBM X60

There is still one problem with the puppy-precise-official repo will not let you download from ibiblio, it only gives you the chose of local folder.

This BUG has existed for a while but it's now percise sub version .73 taking hours to get a working mouse. This really needs to be addressed. Tab reset only works once then disappears.
