Re: Can I install .rpm or .deb drivers on Sabayon?

Thanks Fitzcarraldo, I performed the layman commands, 'sabayon' worked fine, but 'sabayon-overlay' was not found. Strange, I thought, but after looking at the error, I tried this (toward the end): zenboy spike # layman -d sabayon * Deleting selected overlays,... * Deleting directory "/var/lib/layman...

Re: Can I install .rpm or .deb drivers on Sabayon?

I checked the thread from nickdanger and I already have app-text/a2ps-4.14-r2 installed. But as I mentioned yesterday, my sys-apps/file version is sys-apps/file-5.06. Upgrading to 5.10 and following along with the nickdanger commands (I already have git and do emerge --sync && layman -S after every ...

Re: Can I install .rpm or .deb drivers on Sabayon?

Yes, Fitzcarraldo, I have that symlink in place, just checked its properties again and it "points to" /usr/lib/cups/filter/brlpdwrapperDCP7065DN from /usr/libexec/cups/filter/brlpdwrapperDCP7065DN. It has been there from way back, around when I first started working on the installation. Here is the ...

Re: Can I install .rpm or .deb drivers on Sabayon?

Fitzcarraldo, the merge I did yesterday seemed fine, but not quite the same as today's (I went ahead and disconnected Ethernet for this anyway). This one gave: zenboy ~ # FEATURES="-collision-detect -protect-owned" emerge -1v cupswrapperDCP7065DN dcp7065dnlpr These are the packages that would be mer...

Re: Can I install .rpm or .deb drivers on Sabayon?

BHReach, umm, don't be too sure I can read a shell script so well... but, I extracted a spare cupswrapper archive and looked at what you said, found what I believe to be the same file in /usr/local/Brother/Printer/DCP7065DN/cupswrapper/, so when installing a new printer in CUPS that next time I used...

Re: Can I install .rpm or .deb drivers on Sabayon?

Oops, again, no I didn't, Fitcarraldo. I have changed it now. I also renamed the problematic directory mentioned in my last post back to dcp7065dnlpr and the ebuild back to dcp7065dnlpr-2.1.0.ebuild. And deleted the file brdcp7065dnlpr-2.1.0.ebuild in /usr/local/portage/net-print/dcp7065dnlpr/. Then...

Re: Can I install .rpm or .deb drivers on Sabayon?

Yes, there was one: cupswrapperDCP7065DN-2.0.4-2.i386.rpm._checksum_failure_.oufY6i. Good call! And the rpm cupswrapper size looked funny as well, though the dcp7065dnlpr-2.1.0-1.i386.rpm file size matched yours: -rw-rw-r-- 1 portage portage 1901 Feb 19 11:50 cupswrapperDCP7065DN-2.0.4-2.i386.rpm -r...

Re: Can I install .rpm or .deb drivers on Sabayon?

Fitzcarraldo, thanks, and yes, I had already fixed the description just to tidy up, although as you said, it probably wouldn't make a difference anyway. I modified the file to reflect the actual name: Code: Select all DEPEND=" app-text/a2ps net-print/brdcp7065dnlpr " per your instructions, then recr...

Re: Can I install .rpm or .deb drivers on Sabayon?

Wow, Fitzcarraldo - thank you so much for taking the time to hack the ebuilds for my dcp7065dn, I really appreciate it. So I went through the steps in sequence: zenboy spike # mkdir -p /usr/local/portage/net-print/cupswrapperDCP7065DN zenboy spike # cd /usr/local/portage/net-print/cupswrapperDCP7065...

Re: Can I install .rpm or .deb drivers on Sabayon?

Still trying to get to the hack of the ebuild, but I ran these through and got zenboy spike # cd /usr/local/Brother/Printer/DCP7065DN/cupswrapper zenboy cupswrapper # sh cupswrapperDCP7065DN-2.0.4 cp: `/usr/lib/cups/filter/brlpdwrapperDCP7065DN' and `/usr/lib64/cups/filter/brlpdwrapperDCP7065DN' are...
