Paul, Glad to *finally* be of some help! Very Happy

BTW, Did you see Barry is planning on replacing Xpdq with gutenprint. I read it in his developer Blog. I see it has support for my CX-4800. So I'm stoked! I like Cups alright, But it would be nice to not have to install anything else to get support for my printer!

Dave

Yes, I have seen Barry's plans. That's why I'm reluctant to work on making the CUPS package smaller. I would really like to give it a try, but I don't really know what he is going to do and there is a risk of duplicate effort.

BTW, in case you haven't seen it, I have posted an updated CUPS dotpup "cups-install-v0.3.pup (with Gutenprint)" in this thread: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=13466

This dotpup is all of 19MB Sad But like I said, I'll wait until I know more about what Barry is planning before making the effort to reduce the size and possibly splitting the package into dotpups by printer brands.

Thanks for the awesome easy install. I used my own Dell ppd file, and now want to know if I can safely recover some of the ~150 MB of disk space consumed by CUPS. IF so, where can I go to delete them.

Thanks,
Paul

Glad the installation went smoothly Smile

150MB sounds like a bit of an exaggeration. The dotpup is about 19MB and that consists of a lot of compressed .ppd files that don't get expanded on installation.

However, you can recover about 6MB of disk space by deleting around 700 .ppd and .ppd.gz files. They are located in /usr/share/cups/model/ and /usr/share/cups/model/gutenprint/5.0/C/

I used GTKfind in the menu to find them.

Hey Jaxpilot,
Did you try a reboot after the install?
I was thinking that some of the 150 Meg might be the
temporaries from the extraction.
A reboot should clear them.
I mention this as I have noted changes in the "available"
memory displayed after a reboot.
Just a thought.
Woof!
