PostPosted: Thu 04 Jun 2015, 18:17    Post subject: PADS.1.0.4
Subject description: PADS converts DEB-links as broken
 

Hello Rainer,

I like your mpdular sfs-concept of puppy a lot.
It remembers me of 'Mecano' and later on 'LEGO' toys-for-boys.
My old HP-MFC broke down and choose a brother MFC 7360N
My working Puppy was Playdayz's Lucid 511/528
and later on Rerwins's supersulu_x (all frugal installs).
My MFC didnot not -and as I read somewhere will not- work under Lucids.
So I had to go for another puppy capable of printing and scanning on my MFC.


rcrsn51's debbi-1.1.pet, the brother-drivers
and his instructions are working perfectly:
brscan4-0.4.2-1.i386.deb
mfc7360nlpr-2.1.0-1.i386.deb
cupswrapperMFC7360N-2.0.4-2.i386.deb
and sometimes libpoppler3_0.8.7-4_i386.deb


PADS104 by RSH
Then I remembered rsh's PADS putting DEBs in one single SFS
I tought it a nice solution for going to test several newer puppies:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=81511
This is PaDS 1.0.4 ---> convert and merge (P)ET (a)nd (D)EB into a single (S)FS
but .........
PADS104 failed.
PADS104 created a sfs-file but the 3
the printer was detected, but no drivers, ergo no printing
the scanner was not at all detected, ergo no scanning


There were broken Links of brsane (2x) and models4 (a map).
(I'll try to upload the screendump)
Load on the fly did not give me a printed test testpage nor an simple xsane-scan.

Q: need these .deb-files an special treatment in order to get a worging sfs from PADS



dir2sfs by 01micko (?; I'm not sure)
On Barry's precise 5.7.1 I installed the brother-MFC as instructed by rcrsn51'
printing and scanning worked flawless.

Manually I copied the installed files into a mfcprintscan-dir
and ran dir2sfs
the mfcprintscan.sfs was created
I started shinobar's precise 5.7.1
and installed (sfs-load-on-the-fly) the fcprintscan.sfs
Visually everything looked as in Barry's precise (in dirs etc)
no broken links as in rsh PADS104
but ....
the printer was physically detected, but no drivers, ergo no printing
the scanner was not at all detected, ergo no scanning
Q1 & Q2:
What am I doing wrong?
or what is going wrong??

groetjes, greetings & Grüße

Hello KEubus.

Could you please post the links to all the files used, so I could download them and check what's going wrong with these files and PaDS.

Thanks

Note:

I don't have any Internet Access anymore, so I need to go to the Internet Cafe for that. Though, it could take some time.

Hello Rainer,




these are the .DEB links I used to install the Brother MFC7360N

http://www.brother.com/cgi-bin/agreement/agreement.cgi?dlfile=http://www.brother.com/pub/bsc/linux/dlf/mfc7360nlpr-2.1.0-1.i386.deb&lang=English_lpr

I did not use 64bits

In tahrpup and dpup I used to install the .DEB-files doubleclicking or rcrsn51 debbi.pet script; both methods worked perfect.

I just saw rcrsn51 updated his debbi.pet on 2015-06-06

I also have a brother printer and I install the drivers with debbi by rcrsn51. The debbi's need is that it executes a post-install script in the deb file. You cannot install the deb driver by just clicking on it. I don't think that using PADS is a good choice to install the drivers of a brother printer.

Hi watchdog

brother MFC7360N is not supported by the Lucid / sulu kernel as I read somewhere

so I tried the brother*.deb files on a few puppies
tharpup, unicorn, precise571 and pemasu's raring3992
the MFC7360N (Pinting & scanning) worked in all of them
a) by doublecliking the .deb's
b) using rcrsn51 's debbi

making a sfs by rsh PADS did not succeed; rsh is now looking at this issue
One single SFS by using PADS seemed pretty convienient to me
on my search for a 'new puppy' serving my new hardware

Hi.

Today I've downloaded these Files

http://www.brother.com/cgi-bin/agreement/agreement.cgi?dlfile=http://www.brother.com/pub/bsc/linux/dlf/mfc7360nlpr-2.1.0-1.i386.deb&lang=English_lpr

and will check later at home to build a SFS from these Files. Though I can NOT test if it will work, since I do NOT own any Printer.

I did NOT download the 64bit Packages, so hopefully I did not overseen anything.

Hi

if you PM me your sfs I 'll test your sfs / pet
and report back how it works.


I'll test the 32bit- and 64bit packages with your adapted PADS-version
and let you know the results so you could finetune your PADS

have a nice day

I had made some test on this.

Building the SFS manually and building the SFS using PaDS.

What ever I tried, the SFS won't load from /root/ in Lucid Puppy. In Tahr and Unicorn it loads fine from /root.

In Lucid, Tahr, Unicorn the SFS did load fine from boot partition and boot directory.

Sorry for being so late and for not carrying the SFS with me. Probably in a few days...

Hello Rainer,

thanks for making the brother-sfs available.

I was using Rerwin's upgrade
lupusuper4plus
based on Pemasu's kernel 3.9.9
# uname -a
Linux puppypc 3.9.9-upup #1 SMP Fri Jul 12 21:50:30 EEST 2013 i686 GNU/Linux

I tried installing your brother-sfs

from the ~/download I copied the brother-sfs
to /root
to /home
to /home/lupusuper4plus


I installed the brother-sfs
by double clicking as well as using sfs-load-on-the-fly from inside
~/download
/root
/home
/home/lupusuper4plus
Each option had a negative result: no-printing & no-scanning

The best SCANNER-result
::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
found USB scanner (vendor=0x04f9, product=0x0270) at libusb:001:007
but
# scanimage -L
No scanners were identified.
and so
xsane didnot find a device

The best PRINTER-result
::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
Brother_MFC-7360N-1  Test Page  anonymous  1k  Unknown  stopped 
"Empty print file!"
:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::


After this exercise I used debbi.pet by rcrsn51 and installed the brother*.deb files
Scanning and Printing were both negative.

So I ran out of options
and will try some other puppies

Greeting with rain > sunshine

The best SCANNER-result
::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
found USB scanner (vendor=0x04f9, product=0x0270) at libusb:001:007
:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
but I was not able to make a scan
:::::::::::::::

# Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported by

# scanimage -L

No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation
which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).

Since I don't have access anymore to my old RSH account and therefor I'm unable to change the topics title to 'discontinued', I'm going to post here:

THIS IS NOW DISCONTINUED AND NOT SUPPORTED ANYMORE!

All my work done is by now combined and continued into T.O.P.L.E.S.S.

Hi Lazy Puppy,

My apologies for reviving your discontinued thread. Well, what did you expect from a forum member all of whose ancestors came from Transylvania. Laughing

This is just to point to my discussion regarding using PaDS under 64-bit operating systems.http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=940751#940751

Edited to point to 5th rather than 1st post of thread. Suggest reading first post, anyway.

Happy New Year.
