Description Steve Flack 2002-02-10 08:47:58 UTC
Here's an ebuild of the Hewlett Packard inkjet server to go with the ghostscript patch I submitted 
on Monday. HPIJS acts as an interface between ghostscript and the printer and produces much 
higher quality output than gimp-print. It is now also 'open' ;-) To use it people will need to emerge 
ghostscript separately - It's not a dependency but it's useless without it then get the .ppd and 
cupsomatic scripts from

Ebuild script for hpijs-1.0.2

I've put this in net-print/hpijs but app-text/hpijs may also be suitable

The digest will follow shortly...

ok, looks pretty good for a first submission.

but i have some complaints ;-)

if its useless to use it without ghostscript, then please put
ghostscript as an RDEPEND (a runtime dependency, not a build-time

next, you mention the ppd files and cupsomatic scripts, but you make
no message in pkg_postinst() about that!  so this is pretty selfish ebuild
if you ask me, please make your submissions applicable to ALL GENTOO USERS

i suggest you fetch and install those relevant pieces in your ebuild
or come up with something a little more smart.

Im not committing this for those reasons.  sorry.

fix it up, and try again ;-)

no slight intended, i just want your submission to be a little better ;)
