I've been trying to get a printer installed for over a week. Cups was suggested, as well as moving the discussion here.
I'm sure I'm making heavy weather of a simple task.
So far as downloaded 'cups-1.1.23-source.tar.gz into /ramdisk/home/dsl
gzip -d cups-1.1.23-source.tar.gz
tar xvf cups-1.1.23-source.tar
moved to /cups-1.1.23 directory
read the install.txt
followed that and it came back with
'No acceptable C compiler found in $PATH'
Anyone with any clues on what I should be doing? This is not familiar territory for me and I get the feeling I spend a lot of time just 'poking in the dark'.
The object of the exercise it just to get hard copy of the 'Siap' spreadsheet printed. Otherwise DSL is not a useable system for me, whether this is achieved by running cups or buying a known compatible printer, I really don't mind.
So much else about DSL is great, shame to fall at this hurdle.
