Hi,

I already struggled for hours installing a network printer that uses raw drivers. It simply does not work! I installed the gutenprint drivers with all useflags set, which also installed the correct driver. However, when I try to print a test page from the cups interface (localhost:631), I get an error message like



Code:

could not send the job to the printer driver:
Format „application/vnd.cups-command“ not supported


in the error log file, two new entries emerge:

Code:

E [06/Oct/2010:13:59:46 +0200] Unable to open listen socket for address :::631 - Address family not supported by protocol.
E [06/Oct/2010:14:00:04 +0200] Returning IPP client-error-document-format-not-supported for Send-Document (ipp://localhost:631/printers/testprinter) from localhost


I followed the gentoo manual, which seems to me a bit outdated since the files

Code:
/etc/cups/mime.types
/etc/cups/mime.convs


do not exist on my machine. However, I created them with the suggested entry, and the problem remains. On Ubuntu, the correct driver is found automatically and everything works....

In /etc/cups/mime-types do you have a line
Code:

application/vnd.cups-command    string(0,'#CUPS-COMMAND')

If so do you have something like
Code:

commandtoepson

in /usr/libexec/cups/filter?
Gerard.

I use gutenprint for a normal Epson printer so I have no experience with raw printers.
However if you don't have "net-print/foomatic-filters-ppds" installed it might be worth a try.
You should have "cups" in your use flags and it might be necessary to re-emerge cups.
Gerard.

Edit: The file mime.convs contains a line at the bottom tha should be uncommented for raw files.

ok, problem got solved meanwhile. I can't really tell, what the solution is, but in fact, normal printing now works. The testpage still doesn't, same error as before.

thanks a lot gerard82 for your help. Maybe one last thing: can you (or someone else) post the content of your

Code:
/etc/cups/mime.types
/etc/cups/mime.convs


since these files simply did not exist on my machine, so there was nothing come decomment out.

thank you gerard82. I just reinstalled cups (1.4.4) and checked if these files were then installed. By that, I found out that they are just in a new location:

Code:
 /usr/share/cups/mime/mime.convs
/usr/share/cups/mime/mime.types


I will fill a bugreport to ask to include this in the documentation.

I don't know if it's related, but:

Code:

E [06/Oct/2010:13:59:46 +0200] Unable to open listen socket for address :::631 - Address family not supported by protocol.


it is trying to bind to ipv6

Try changing /etc/cups/cupsd.conf to be:

Code:

Listen 127.0.0.1:631


instead of localhost:631 (or whatever)

Just a guess, I would be surprised if cupsd didn't simply ignore this error and bind only to ipv4, but who knows.

If this is unrelated, please ignore, I don't use cups, so I'm making guesses :)

I use net-print/cups-1.3.11-r2.
Tried 1.4.4 but it gave me lots of problems.
Gerard.

Edit: 1.4.4 is still masked.

I am running testing (~amd64) system.

Thanks cach0rr0 for the comment, I will try that.
