Re: Printserver for windows clients (Samba and CUPS)

I had a lot of trouble with CUPS and my Canon MP800 printer. It would print a page and a bit then hang. The printer would be crashed, and the rpi not talking to it. No amount of fiddling with options, reboots etc could get it to work reliably. In the end I used the p910nd very simple driver that pip...

Re: Raspbian usb printer server using p910nd

I take that back. It's now working with normal and gutten print MP800 drivers.
I had to restart the p910nd service. I think I had been messing with it too much.

Thanks very much for your help. :D :)

Re: Raspbian usb printer server using p910nd

I'm not quite celebrating. It does not work on OSX :-( I found a reference where it indicated you need guttenprint drivers, which i tried also but no luck. The http://mwolske.wordpress.com/2010/11/03/setting-up-the-netgear-rangemax-wnr3500l-router-to-share-printers/ iMac says it cant communicate wit...

Re: Raspbian usb printer server using p910nd

Thanks for the postm i'd like to try it. I've had no end of trouble with CUPS feezing with my Canon MP800.

So if I were to use your pre-compiled core, after I get it, so I skip to step 12?

Re: Printserver for windows clients (Samba and CUPS)

The 1st line of the instructions is missing the word install i think:

sudo apt-get install cups

Re: RISC OS on Raspberry Pi

Hi Havent tried the 1Gb yes, but I wanted to congratulate the writers / porters of the RiscOS image.

I put it on a 8Gb stick, and it fired up straight away no issues. This was my first test of RPi.

Thanks, great work :D

Re: RISC OS on Raspberry Pi

I have a 1Gb SD card hanging around and I wondered if RISCOS could be fitted onto it. The distribution says 2Gb, but there really should be plenty of room. My entire RPC HD was only 200Mb...

Has anyone tried?

Re: RISC OS on Raspberry Pi

Hi Folks

Have any of you run RISCOS of a 1gb SD card?

I thought I'd ask before I spend too much time trying.

Also, any ideas how I can get files off of my ancient RISC PC? no ethernet, no usb... Floppy, i dont have one on my PC, CD? not on the Acorn.
