General Discussion / Open Sourced Software
« on: September 04, 2014, 11:22:51 pm »
As an aside, and no doubt to your great pleasure, Martin, Peter Moylan is releasing his software as open source, GPL licenced. He has uploaded, and will upload future releases, to Hobbes.
I can recommend Peters software and his support of it without any reservations. Wonder if Brian Havard would do the same for FC/2?

I just noticed this. Probably a pre-announcement, waiting for the officail publication:

    Dear Fellow OS/2 Users...
    My name is Lewis Rosenthal. Some of you may already be familiar with me as
    the maintainer of several OS/2 and eCS mailing lists, the web host for
    VOICE, and as the treasurer of Warpstock Corporation, the advocacy
    organization which holds the annual OS/2 and eCS conference in North America.
    Our community has been relatively quiet over the past year or so, in terms
    of new OS/2 products and eCS releases. Late last year, I began to think
    about the future of OS/2 as a platform, knowing that in the background, a
    considerable amount of work was being done to maintain, update, and support
    eCS, with little made available to the audience.
    I began actively seeking investors for a new company with a new vision for
    OS/2. To my delight, I have been able to assemble a group of such
    like-minded people, and as I write this, we are forming this new company.
    Part of the philosophy of the new entity will be to maintain strong ties to
    the user community through the remaining organizations we have, and to
    cultivate long term relationships with cooperative developers and vendors to
    provide what we think is a more unified and organized face for our platform
    of choice. Call this "branding and packaging" if you will.
    While the products offered by the new company as packaged will be fee-based,
    as far as we are able, code will be GPL (or GPL-compatible).
    In the coming weeks, look for further announcements, a new website, public
    forums and mailing lists, and soon after, a working web shop.

Setup & Installation / Cups won't print PDFs
« on: February 17, 2014, 06:14:45 pm »
Printing from most applications works.
When I try to print from Lucide or Qpdfview I get errors. See below for excerpts from the error log.
GS8.71, Gutenprint 5.2.9, Cups 1.4.8 installed freshly from ZIP files. Don't know if it is related, but I can't install using wpi, Warpin gives an error 'Invalid package index "5" specified with REQUIRED attribute' when trying to extract cups-base-1_4_8_3.wpi, although all required packages are in the same directory.

Printing from Qpdfview:
cups/lib/cups/filter/pstoraster failed
