cups 1.3.7-2 + hplip 2.8.9-2 broken
|Reported by:||davekam@…||Owned by:||developers|
|Priority:||normal||Milestone:||Barrier Breaker 14.07|
I am running the latest kamikaze snapshot, on Asus WL-500W (platform brcm-2.4). I've noticed an issue with hplip since the cups/hplip upgrade from September. The hp backend for cups is broken. First of all /usr/lib/cups/backend/hp is linked to libdbus-1.so.3, but the hplip package does not depend on dbus. I suspect it should simply be built without dbus support -- this is how previous versions were and there was no need for dbus.
Even when I install dbus, however, the hp backend is broken -- it simply hangs when run, either by cups or manually. I have no idea why this might be, but have been unable to resolve it.
I've also noticed that the usb backend for cups seems not to be called by cups-deviced. When run manually, however, it works. This is less of a big issue since it's possible to manually add the usb:// address to the printers.conf file.
