i think that the allow/deny settings in cups.conf need to match the ip address you are using to access the server

i think the default setting is to allow 127.0.0.1, so connecting to the server with the address http://127.0.0.1:631/ might work but the address http://localhost:631/ might not ... it depends how cups.conf is configured ... basically, you have to allow your client access to the server ... for example, your machine's client might be 192.168.0.xxx

and you might have to allow access to the server in your firewall, especially if you are printing from another machine on a network

Thanks G2, that was it. Accessing CUPS from http://127.0.0.1:631/ worked.

Success at last, Very Happy after many hours of research, trial and error, have finally got my Canon Pixmaip1000 working via CUPS. Canon printers are known not to be very Linux friendly, when I collect my thoughts will post the procedure in detail. Thanks must go to pakt for his efforts in making CUPS easy to install, also to those who made contributions.

Bugger now I have to start again. I have been building a replacement computer for a neighbour and have been tossing up wether to install windows 98se or Puppy the deciding thing was the canon pixmap 1000 printer, I went for windows. Now I will have to install Puppy no big deal except its an IPaq, no cdrom drive. I await you instructions for the printer.

Paul, I have no printer, but from this forum and my german one I know, that "printing" usually is the weakest thing in a modern linux-desktop.

Very great if it works, we should suggest Barry to add a installation-button to the printing-wizard.
Thanks for this masterpiece Very Happy

Mark

Mark,
How do you manage with no printer. Is it possible you simply don't need one? If so how do you swing that, because I would like to kill fewer trees as welll?

Ok, this is simple.
Get a large bed.
Position a 19'' LCD-monitor in front of it.

Lay down in a cozy position.

Now you can read even long texts without problem Laughing

I do all postal things via Email if possible, and if I really need to print something (what happens once or twice a year), then I do it at work or visit a friend Wink

Success with Brother HL-2070N printer.

Puppy version 2.02 Regression.



I HAVE MADE IT EASIER SEE :-

http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?t=11843


But this way still works.


Vital. Before you start, install csh. This is posted under bsd-csh, install it as csh.

http://www.murga.org/~puppy/viewtopic.php?t=9985&highlight=bsdcsh

Download and install:-
undeb.pup
Dotpup-Wizard-mu06.pup
cups-installer0.2v1.pup
From Brother solutions website, download the driver and cupswrapper packages.

http://solutions.brother.com/linux/sol/printer/linux/cups_drivers.html

Put them into separate directories.
Use undeb and dotpup-wizard to turn the debian packages to dotpups.

Run the driver dotpup first, then the cupswrapper dotpup. Do not delete the dotpup files.

Rerun the dotpups using re-install to get a list of where the files are, usually /usr/local/"name of directory"/...................etc. Use the list, dont reinstall.

Copy these files into the cups directories, dropping off the usr/local/"name" bit. Remember driver files first, then cupswrapper files.

Next reboot the computer.

Use http://localhost:631/ to set up printer, pay attention to usb or parallel cable. Try printing a test page.


Regards to all.

Tony.

This is a very useful addition to Puppy, and as it works well in versions 1 and 2, really commendable.

Now, this newbie question: what should the user do to using Puppy and CUPS (this package) to print to a Puppy workstation in the local network?

Sorry about the late reply raffy - I just now saw your message.

To answer your question, it is very simple to set up a Puppy client to print to a Puppy server (or any other Puppy PC with an attached printer) in your local network.

Just install 'cups-install-v0.2r1.pup' on the client.

Choose 'network' for the type of printer.

When the CUPS web interface and the help window start up, just close the help window.

In the CUPS web interface, click on 'Printers' in the menu at the top of the page and you will see a list of printers available to you in your network. (Note that this will *not* work with printers on windows PCs. They need to be set up with Samba.)

To test, just click on 'Print test page' for that printer.

HTH
Paul

Tony, thanks for your instructions. I have a Brother HL-1030 winprinter that I have working with CUPS. It would be interesting to compare Brother's driver with the .ppd driver I use with CUPS. I will give it a try as soon as I have time.
