Re: Epson M200 on NetBSD

Hi! Yes!!! All OK!!! Printer successfully print with new version of driver on NetBSD 9.1_STABLE amd64.

Please, send driver to: netbsd-users@, pkgsrc-users@, maintainer bsiegert@ and CC me...


Original problem reports are here:

In chasing this bug, I

a) added code to the epson driver sources to divert the final ESC/P-R
   to file.
b) hacked up a simple server to simulate an Epson M200 (I don't own one)
   and wrote the printer file sent by CUPS (also) to a file.
(In both cases, the printer files were converted using NetPBM and the
PrinterToPDF tool:

only to discover that the bug doesn't exist in 1.7.9...

Reading the NEWS file revealed:
epson-inkjet-printer-escpr-                        (2020-07-23)
* Supported new model.
* Fixed an issue of filter crash when FIFO I/O was closed.

So, the problem was fixed by Epson's own engineers.

Please update epson-inkjet-printer-escpr to version 1.7.9. It fixes
the user's printer issue.

I compiled the package which the user tested as follows:

0a. mkdir build-epson-inkjet-printer-escpr-1.7.9 &&
    cd build-epson-inkjet-printer-escpr-1.7.9

0b. export CPPFLAGS="-D__unix -I/usr/pkg/include" \
    LDFLAGS="-L/usr/pkg/lib -Wl,-rpath=/usr/pkg/lib" \
    CFLAGS="-O2 -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 -fstack-protector-all -fpic -march=native -pipe"

1. ../epson-inkjet-printer-escpr-1.7.9/configure --prefix=/usr/pkg \
        --with-cupsfilterdir=/usr/pkg/libexec/cups/filter \

2. make noinst_DATA=""

3. make noinst_DATA="" DESTDIR=/tmp/epson install

The ``noinst_DATA=""'' works around a bogus dependency in the Makefile.

The ``-D__unix'' is used to get rid of the patch which is currently
being applied. (The ``__unix'' define is also checked in some other
files, but no patch exists for them.)

As a further aside, Dmitrii also made an unsolicited contribution
to TNF as thanks--which is much appreciated.
