Hardware / Re: CUPS EPSON ET-4700 printer problems
« on: Today at 02:53:45 am »
Hi roberto

Why in pdf format? -  cups logs are usually plain text - and why so small?

You need to look through the error log for lines starting with [E] which may give a clue as to the problem... Looks like gutenprint52+usb failure close to the start of the log. Not sure what ippfind is but it looks like it may be missing (or installed in the wrong place) and further down the log it looks like \"/@unixroot/usr/lib/cups/filter/epson-escpr-wrapper.exe\" is missing/not found.

Possibly you have an incomplete installation...


Regards

Pete

Hi roberto

Point your browser to the cups gui http://localhost:631/admin

Check the option "Save debugging information for troubleshooting" then click Change Settings.

Attempt to print the cups test page and, hopefully, the log will give us a clue as to what is going wrong.

Hi Martin

As the .msg file exists it seems that the messages bldlevel.rexx wants to display do not exist in the .msg file.

Hi Valery

Just had a play with bldlevel.rexx - copied the file to bldlvl.cmd and ran it in an os2 window.

Not very encouraging as all it reports is:-

SYS0317: The system cannot find message  xxxx
in message file OSO001.MSG.

where xxxx is a choice of 8069, 8070, 8073,  8075.

Looks like either I am not using the rexx file correctly or it is looking for non-existent messages in OSO001.MSG.


Regards

Pete

Hi Martin

If you have a copy of USbcfg installed then you should also have a copy of GETDESC.DLL which USBcfg uses to extract buildlevel information. However, this DLL is built to work with Pascal coding so would probably need a bit of reworking to work with "c" code.

The DLL was put together by Lars, of USB drivers fame, so you could ask him if he could build a "c" version.


Later Edit: The zip file Lars sent me contains source (cpp, def files) and makefile so you could probably modify it yourself. Let me know if you want a copy.

Internet / Re: The new browser / QT5

Hi All

Will there be an email/newsreader client to go with the new browser?

Programming / Re: Mozturbo help

Hi All

If an app I write offers a browser or email link then the app will rummage through the os2.ini file to locate the default browser/email client. Obviously if the user has not set the default browser/email client then the link does not work - and I usually remember to code a popup message as to why clicking the link failed :-)

So tools like Configure Internet Applications are very useful, easier to use than an ini file editor - but only if the user runs the tool and enters the necessary data.

Applications / Re: BS_Info v2.2 and AVxCat
« on: August 25, 2019, 02:55:15 am »
Hi All

Just installed BS_Info v2.2 and gave it a try.

I am a little concerned about the IFS information displayed regarding my fat32 driver:-

   fat32.ifs   v0.10.r204
   *** very dangerous ***


Does anyone know why this fat32 driver is "*** very dangerous ***"?

Could the answer explain why several usb drives formatted using the above fat32 driver have had a few problems? - the latest was my D: drive which started displaying the directories listed in the root of the drive in a subdirectory repeatedly. To show an eg:-

D:
    \Images
    \Docs
    \Vids
    \Temp
                 \Images
                 \Docs
                 \Vids
                 \Temp
                             \Images
                              \Docs
                              \Vids
                              \Temp


Opening any directory results in "no objects found..." message; using the cmdline no files are found.

Guess I'll have to ask Jan (DFSee) to help sort this mess out.


Regards

Pete

Hi Tuure

Do you still have the "activation" email from when you registered? - That should have your username/password combination.

Hi roberto

It may be worth trying the alternative 8111 driver, MMRE.OS2, to see if that makes a difference.

Hi roberto

Sorry, no answers only questions...

Which driver did you select for the 8111?

What are you trying to connect to using the samba client?

Could it be a samba configuration or authorization problem due to change of nic/driver?

Hi David

Looks good to me - far better than I could manage.

I will use it with the next release of HPscan   :-)


Thanks

Hi David

There are several "characters" involved - see http://www.digger.org/

I would upload the digger.ico used by digmenu but os2world does not allow uploading .ICO or .BMP files...

Hi David

Your Digger icon is not Digger, it is Nobbin.

Any chance of a good scanner icon preferably with a HP logo on? - I am sure you can do much better than my HPscan icon...

Pete

Hi All

Not sure if this thread should be "hijacked" to discuss the BMPs supplied with DIGMENU3.ZIP but as Andre has commented I guess I should respond...

I did consider converting images but decided as the images total <1Mb to leave them alone.

The images are not required at all in order for digmenu to run - just make the interface more fun - so can be deleted if disk space is really tight.

Alternatively a user can create their own BMP files to use, just need to make the new images the same size as existing BMPs and use the same names as the existing BMP files.


Regards

Pete
