Looks like you're trying to install a linux ppd on OS/2?? This has a reasonable chance of working for a postscript printer, however this one seems to need an external filter (epson-escpr-wrapper) which isn't available for OS/2.

Unless Epson has publushed the code for epson-escpr-wrapper or some other open source driver like gutenprint supports this model, you might be out of luck.

Can the PDF file be parsed afterwards, with or without e.g. Xpdf's pdftotext.exe?

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...

If the name is not given when the report is printed to PMPDF it will always be yyyymmddhhmmss-InvoiceReport.pdf and this file name would have to renamed to 12345.pdf. Remember I use PMPDF's options set to "automatically create pdf" so in this case there is no way to see from the file name that it actually is invoice no. 12345.
Using PMPDF to automatically create pdf's from another application I have results in files named with this format;
yyyymmddhhmmss-Invoice_12345_Account_67890.pdf, so in this case renaming is an easy task.
However, I don't have the sources so I cannot see how it is taking the invoice number and account number from the record and uses them as parts of the file name.

Hi roberto,

Sorry about possibly leading you down the wrong track but that was the only way I could get my DCP-9020cdw (colour laser / scanner) and HL-3170cdw (colour laser) to work over the network.  I could never get CUPS to work so I looked for an alternative and it works.  I even use the Brother Linux drivers on my two Linux computers rather than CUPS.

I have thought about this many times, but I always leave it for later. And today looking at it a bit,
I thought it can be made easier. List the pdfs sorted by dates, and rename it and that's it.

dir "d:\pdf\20190920*.pdf" /O:DN /F >"d:\pdf\xxxxxxx.txt"
rename a b

1) I did have FFMPEG installed
2) I now did a "Refresh Firefox" and that has fixed the problem.

Many thanks for your help !
