Subject description: And Frisbee takes a long time to assign an IP address
 

Hello everyone, for over 10 years I use puppy. The biggest thing there is. I do not remember which version I started with.
Please excuse my sometimes bad English, it comes from the google translator.

My mother tongue is German.

And a question (or better two) I have the same. After switching to Xenialpup I can not print anymore. It was possible with L64-514.

Which Brother drivers do I need to download? Printer is DCP-J7 725DW.

The second question: Why does it take a while (until 30s) for Frisbee to assign an Internet address.

Is there a faster method? It does not have to be Frisbee either.

Hallo willithepuppy. I have tested the following procedure to install my Brother Hl2130 Printer in Xenial64 7.5. It works for me but it's not a official procedure and it may contain errors. You should use the lpr and the cupswrapper deb drivers for your printer from:

http://support.brother.com/g/s/id/linux/en/download_prn.html#DCP-J725DW

Install debbi 1.3 from:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=306619#306619

Download through quickpet the 32 bit compatibility sfs and load it by sfs-load-on-the-fly. Run in console:

Code:
ldconfig


Copy in /usr/bin the following script named start32 with execute permissions:

Code:
#!/bin/dash
# 32-bit compatibility wrapper script for Fatdog64 710
export USE_ARCH=32

### launch command
if [ $# -ne 0 ]; then
   exec linux32 "$@"
else
   exec linux32 sh # otherwise linux32 will launch login shell and ignore our env above
fi


Copy in /root/Startup the following script named cups-fix with execute permissions:

Code:
#!/bin/sh
/etc/init.d/cups stop
start32 /etc/init.d/cups start


Install your lpr and cupswrapper drivers with debbi. In my case I run:

Code:
debbi hl2130lpr-2.1.0-1.i386.deb
debbi cupswrapperHL2130-2.0.4-2.i386.deb


(change using your drivers).

Reboot. Open the browser at localhost:631 and add your printer: you should discover the right driver in the list.

watchdog, you are the GREATEST !!! Very Happy
Everything looks well! Now I've printed my first Page in Xenion.
Because I'll run Xenion whithout any Savefile (fully commented out) , I'd to build a new Xenion.sfs, but still works very well.
That's exactly what I wanted. Many Thank's.
