Thank you, guys!

Jamesbond, yes... it is my sole local printer, connected via USB. Found the permissions stuff Menu > Cups manage printing > Administration tab > Manage Printers > left click on desired printer > under 'Administration' drop down menu, select 'Set Allowed Users' > enter 'root spot' (without ''). Now the default printing capability is -- at least functionally -- restored.

rcrsn51, that's the ticket! I had already gone to the link you provided, but was getting a geek CLI message that indicated a 32-bit library was not being accepted by the 64-bit system when trying the pixma-backend-qrky-1.0.21.pet. Might have just been a problem on my end, but installing your pixma-backend-fd64-1.0.21.pet solved my scanning issue with my Canon PIXMA MP460. Thank you!

Excellent.

Because this package also installs libusb1.0, it slightly modifies how other USB devices work. However, I have never had a problem with this in 32-bit systems like Quirky.

Here is the HP printer package for CUPS. These are just basic printer drivers - no scanners, firmware plugins or toolkits.

Please provide feedback.

Thanks, works fine using Xsane with my HP C5280.

@jamesbond
I have prepared an sfs of the 64bit final version of LibreOffice-3.1.1_en-US that works fine,including printing, with Fatdog. If you like, PM me temporary upload info, and I'll upload it to your site. I've already uploaded the 32bit version to playdayz and it should be available for download with Quickpet in the new Lucid-5.2.

Cheers,
Jim

Thank you everyone!

Please give feedback to rcrsn51's pets - if they're ok, I'll put them to the repo.

Jim, I tried LibreOffice 3.1.1 before (when you announced to me), when it opened for the first time there was a window re-painting problem on its welcome screen. It doesn't affect functionality but it does give the impression that the application is "broken". Has this been fixed (=ie, doesn't happen in your system)? You can use the mydrive.ch account in page 7 of this thread, and upload it to "upload" folder. Let's hear some feedback on it and if it's ok, I'll publish that to the repo. Thanks for packaging Smile

cheers!

Curiously, even though the extra library allowed Xsane to start and (preview) scan in FD64, I discovered that Xsane would not actually scan and save the image -- even with the new library added. Xsane merely reported that the operation was canceled.

HOWEVER, adding the peasyscan dot pet solves the issue by both scanning and successfully saving the image. Wish peasyscan would create .pdf's, but .jpgs will certainly do (and might be smaller).

Wondering if I can professionally manipulate and image to insert a hand-written signature and then use something like sam2p to convert from a jpg into a pdf..... But then, I wouldn't need to print or scan (as much) if I could do that.

Peasyscan lets you save the image as a Postscript (PS) file. You can then convert it to a PDF with
Code:
ps2pdf xxx.ps

thanks rcrsn51 and others for the fd64 511 hp printer pets and others pets, my fd is obese by puppy standards. I've only "fixed" it once enough to break but was a good learning opportunity. Almost everything is working now...

Just can't quite figure out how to get my sound back in fd HDD install on new HP dual intel which do have sound on the other distros, have triple boot Snow Puppy and Knoppix on the HDD. I'm in the wrong section for the question but hoping it's a simple fix a seasoned fd user will have off the top. thanks again jim

Could you be more specific? What printer model(s) did you test? Did you use both the printer and scanner drivers?

My wife got both hpijs_print_fd64-3.11.1.pet and hplip_scan_fd64-3.11.1.pet for a hp6400. May have used both it's over my skill level.

Good report on Frisbee ... if we have good feedback, kirk will probably include that as the default


Frisbee works very well for me, although in some of the earlier versions a few testers were asking for a rollback to the traditional network manager... Haven't seen ANY complaints on the later versions, and I am content with a .pet -- as long as you ensure a valid .pet version is available! As for the broadcom wireless, that's what I have to use on my netbook, with the wl.ko driver and no ssb module loaded. Jemimah's done good work there, too.

Thank you, rcrsn51. I really should remember things like that.... it's either the years or the miles under my belt that cause me to forget.
