Sub_title: Trying to install foo2zjs, a Linux printer driver for ZjStream protocol
 

i tried to install foo2zjs:a linux printer driver for ZjStream protocol. I followed steps from page: http://foo2zjs.rkkda.com/

Error: must install GNU dc with -e option!

What it said : Get a regular dc binary , since it appears that your Puppy uses the busybox dc applet
Type
Code:
type -a dc
readlink -f `which dc`
dc --help

to check for your dc version .

http://packages.ubuntu.com/precise/dc
dl it and open it with xarchive somewhere and fetch the dc binary and put it into /bin directory .

Why are you compiling this driver from source? A year ago, you used a driver PET here.

If you are using a Puppy with a newer kernel, like Precise 571, the foo2xxx driver requires a patch. It is posted here as foo2xxx_udev_patch_upup387-1.0.pet .

The installation procedure is:

1. Install the foo2xxx PET (if not done already)
2. Install the patch PET
3. Reboot the printer
4. Install the printer in CUPS (if not done already)
5. Print something

Please report back with your success or failure. This is important testing on your part.
