Hi Adam

I often see those errors with my first attempt at printing for the day - sometimes it takes 3 attempts before the job gets to the printer.

However, when booted from a different boot volume on the same system and using the existing working cups installation I do not seem to be able to get past these errors at all. My best guess so far is that something in cups needs a DLL file that is installed on the boot drive - possibly in \ecs\dll or \os2\dll - and that (or those) DLL file(s) installed on the non-working system are not at the correct level.  I have not discovered which DLLs may be involved yet...


Regards

Pete

I probably shouldn't have remmed out the Listen /cups/var/run/cups/cups.sock directive but that was giving me errors before because the files are not there, just the certs folder. Maybe that is what this whole mess is about.- the file doesn't exist.

This warning is 100% harmless...

Okay Paul, well I guess that torpedoes that theory out of the water. :) Well I guess I am stumped as to what is causing the Loadfile temp messages.

Hi Adam,

Okay Paul, well I guess that torpedoes that theory out of the water. :) Well I guess I am stumped as to what is causing the Loadfile temp messages.

Can you change LogLevel to debug2 and generate a log of an attempt to print a testprint, and either attach the log here or email it to me?

Cheers,

Paul

H Paul, the error log is apparently too large ti attach and I do not have an email for you so if you could give me email than I would have no problem sending it to you. You did say set it to degub2 correct? After I did that and restarted the cups server it spitted out the last 3 test pages I had sent before I changed the log level. Weird. It's great work you are doing with this. Maybe it just doesn't like me. :).

Hello! I'm also having problems installing eCUPS 2.1 . I installed the base, HP-LIP, ecups_HP driver and wizard packages, and replaced cups20.dll in ecs\dll with the new version. I used the wizard to try to create a printer (I like the fact that the HP deskjet 2510 is now listed) but it failed. Relevant part of the log is attached - I think the problem occurs where it says 'broken pipe'. I'm not sure what to try to fix this.

Hi Pete2

No, the Boken pipe message is not the problem - looks like it closed successfully on the next line.

Point your browser to http://localhost:631/admin and check the "Save debugging information for troubleshooting" checkbox to get a much more comprehensive error log which should help identify the problem.

While you are using the interface you could also create the cups printer and print a test page. That would help trackdown if the bug is in the cups wizard or elsewhere.


Regards

Pete

Hi Pete. Since my last post I've deleted all and re-installed, and this time the wizard was able to create a printer object with no problems. So that problem was probably something left around from 2.03, and it just needed a thorough enough uninstall. Now I can't print the test page - I'm getting  'not a pdf file' or 'unrecognized file type' errors. I've set log level to debug2 and  part of the log file is attached.

Thanks
Pete

Yep, same type of stuff I was getting until I switched the debug level to debug2. After that it did spit out some test pages I attempted to print earlier but it refused. It has never allowed me to print from an app despite the cups wizard now being able to create a printer object. Maybe I will take another look at the eCups website and see if there is something I overlooked. I still think it is strange that I had to burn all the wpi packages on a cd before it would install. Not doing that it kept complaining about drive d not being ready.

Hi Pete2

I see that failure to print at least once a day - usually the first print job of the day. Cancelling the job and then starting the print job again usually works.

Hmm, it never has for me. It only started printing out some attempts after I switched the logging level to debug2. I have not tried since a couple of days ago.

Hmm, this is interesting. I just now noticed that clicking Print in applications cause the application to quit. It apparently is system wide to. Apache Open Office apps just quit. Test Editor spits out a dialog box about an exception error EGPFault. I wonder if there is an error log that recorded the problem. Let me check... I will see if any other apps with printing capability go "POOF!" when I click print.

...Curious- the EPM editor does not crash. It seems like it is the only one that does not do a houdini when I click Print. It doesn't print anything but it doesn't go "POOF!" either. Weird.

Look for a POPUPLOG.OS2 entry. 

Are you using an imported PPD driver?  Also, which printer DRV: ECUPS.DRV, ECUPS-HP.DRV, PSCRIPT.DRV or PSPRINT.DRV?

I have already checked the POPUPLOG.OS2 file. The only entry in there relating to the ECUPS.DRV driver is this:

03-26-2016  18:54:05  SYS3175  PID 0124  TID 0003  Slot 0094
C:\OS2\APPS\OS2CHESS.EXE
c0000005
1f157393
P1=00000001  P2=00000007  P3=XXXXXXXX  P4=XXXXXXXX 
EAX=00000000  EBX=00c87818  ECX=00c87a64  EDX=00000007
ESI=1b2b6e84  EDI=00c87a66 
DS=0053  DSACC=f0f3  DSLIM=ffffffff 
ES=0053  ESACC=f0f3  ESLIM=ffffffff 
FS=150b  FSACC=00f3  FSLIM=00000030
GS=0000  GSACC=****  GSLIM=********
CS:EIP=005b:1f157393  CSACC=f0df  CSLIM=ffffffff
SS:ESP=0053:00c87438  SSACC=f0f3  SSLIM=ffffffff
EBP=00c876ac  FLG=00012202

ECUPS.DRV 0001:00017393 

I did play some os/2 chess on that day. I don't see why that would have anything to do with the apps not printing though.

eCups printer driver is designated as ECUPS.0. Output port is designated as CUPS2 Localhost:Epson_WordForce_545. Printer is wifi and not connected via USB. The printer object was created by the eCups printer wizard.

I tied it at a command line with lpr. I then checked the Cups admin page and it is still doing the Loadfile temp and file not a PDF file issue. It always seems to be that. I think I will just uninstall it and say the heck with it. Besides, it only let's me install the packages if they are on a cd - not from the virtual machines hard drive. It is the only warpin packages I have found that display this behavior.  It's not worth it.It is not necessary I print from the os/2 virtual machine. I can print just fine using the version of Cups on the Linux host machine. Thanks for the help anyways guys. I do appreciate it.
