Epson D120 and GhostBSD 3.5

Postby hank2000 » Wed Nov 06, 2013 1:44 pm

Hi there!

After getting through most of my issues concerning GhostBSD, I still have trouble to get my Epson D120 running with CUPS and/or Gutenprint.
I tried everything from driver changes to permission changes and now with the D88 drivers of Gutenprint get the following message in CUPS administration:

"***Gutenprint 5.2.8 assertion found failed! file escp2-papers.c, line 149. Please report this bug!"

Can anyone tell me, what it is all about and what maybe to fix in this escp2-papers.c-file?

cheers

Ok,

tried a lot of things and it looks like a driver problem with the gutenprint 5.2.8-drivers!
Right now I am downloading "levi" and may try again with this as a complete new installation or try to compile gutenprint-5.2.9.
we´ll see! ;)

Hi Eric,

Your english sounds a bit strange today, but yes: I will let You know, how the new installation worked and til version 3.5RC1 I had no login-troubles at all, even german layouts work fine now, the message "at.iso not found" has no special meaning, so I just ignore it for the moment! :)

ok, after two hours of installing and configuring I can say:

on a AMD Duron system with 1MB RAM and older Maxtor HDD:

1) first start with normal boot and multi-user status had a hang when getting the scsi-devices ready and screen info went thru without stopping!
started again in "safe mode" and was able to get into desktop, installer started and rebooted after installation.

2) had a moment of "freeze" at login, but after a few seconds could write password and login.

3) have to find out how to change screen resolution manually, as I only get 800x600 and no way found to change via graphic tool, as monitor presents no info for the tool

4) about the wifi manager: network still doesn´ t start automatically, has to be re-configured manually!

5) package installation and bxpkg work smoothly and well, so last topic: printer:

6) still same error in "escp2-papers.c, line 149"

Re: Epson D120 plus screen resolution and GhostBSD 3.5

Ok,

after trying a lot, it looks, like two issues remain, the rest works fine now!

1) the printer problem is still unsolved and with ports I only get another gutenprint5.2.8 version with the same bug.
will there be binaries for gutenprint5.2.9 soon?

2) I tried with graphical tool and manually in xorg.conf to change my resolution from 800x600 to 1024x768 but it still starts with 800x600.
Where do I have to look to change this via konsole?

bye

Hi everyone,

after the "resolution issue" I managed now to solve the "printer issue" as well:

I compiled the new gutenprint version 5.2.9 and changed the output format from ´A4´ to ´letter´ again and it finally worked for the Cups testpage!
No weired system symbols anymore, real pics and characters! wuhu! :D

the other open issues will be put under my second threat "hurray" - but ### happy, the printing now works!

cheers
