Description Mathy Vanvoorden 2006-02-16 15:23:45 UTC

I created an ebuild for the (binary) drivers for the Epson AcuLaser C1100.

Some comments:
* I am not sure about what I should use for License. On the site it says GPL + EPSON AVASYS Privacy Policy, in the tarball it says GPS + EPSON KOWA PUBLIC LICENCE. I think that the latter is obsolete and just didn't change in the tar, but maybe a dev could check that?
* I don't know if the tarball can be distributed. If I read the licence correct, it can, but having the little form on their website, I wasn't sure, so I made the ebuild fetch-only.
* I didn't know if I should use the ppds or the cups USE-flag, so I chose the first, since all it does is install the .ppd-file extra.

Feedback about the "quality" of the ebuild would also be appreciated, I'm still learning here ;-)

I think this should go into net-print btw

that ebuild also works for version 1.2 if you rename it to 'epson-alc1100-1.2.ebuild'. the cups debug output says that the included binary can't find ''. so it should depend on sys-libs/libstdc++-v3

Version 1.2, added amd64 support

I created an ebuild for the newest version, with added amd64 support (it requires the 32-bit compatibility libraries, since it provides a binary), which works for me on an AMD X2 4600+.

New 1.2-version

Woops, I blatantly copied the Skype dependencies for the 32-bit compatibility, but we don't need sound nor X for this ;)

The ebuild has to RDEPEND on net-print/foomatic-filters. Printing will result in an error "Unable to start filter foomatic-filter: No such file or directory."

(this is an automated message based on filtering criteria that matched this bug)
'EBUILD' is in the KEYWORDS which should mean that there is a ebuild attached 
to this bug.
This bug is assigned to maintainer-wanted which means that it is not in the 
main tree.
Heuristics show that no Gentoo developer has commented on your ebuild.

Hello, The Gentoo Team would like to firstly thank you for your ebuild 
submission. We also apologize for not being able to accommodate you in a timely
manner. There are simply too many new packages.

Allow me to use this opportunity to introduce you to Gentoo Sunrise. The 
sunrise overlay[1] is a overlay for Gentoo which we allow trusted users to 
commit to and all users can have ebuilds reviewed by Gentoo devs for entry 
into the overlay. So, the sunrise team is suggesting that you look into this 
and submit your ebuild to the overlay where even *you* can commit to. =)

Because this is a mass message, we are also asking you to be patient with us. 
We anticipate a large number of requests in a short time. 

On behalf of the Gentoo Sunrise Team,

No comments for > 2 years - is anyone still interested in this?
Comment 8 Gus Power 2011-07-11 12:46:08 UTC
Yep we sure are, we've got an Epson C1100 here in the office. This would be great to get into the standard portage tree.
Comment 9 Andreas K. Hüttel archtester gentoo-dev 2012-04-07 17:00:38 UTC
Are you interested in maintaning this driver directly yourself in the new 
printer-drivers overlay [1]?

If yes, just send me via personal e-mail at
a public ssh key [2], so we can give you git push access to the overlay.
If you have a gnupg key, you should sign that e-mail [3].

Just a few rules:
* Initially, the ebuilds should work for you, and not break
  anything else.
* You enter yourself as maintainer in metadata.xml (together with
  the printing herd), and are then automatically cc'ed in bug reports 
  on bugzilla.
* We will guide you towards improving the ebuilds over the next 
  months so they follow the rules and qa guidelines of the Gentoo 
  main portage tree. In particular this means also using a recent
  EAPI (3 or perferably 4), and fixing repoman warnings [4].
  Don't worry, we'll help you with that.
* I hope this is never going to happen, but... ebuilds that "work but 
  go against the guidelines" and do not see any improvement will be 
  removed again one year after initial addition.

There are many ways to get help.
* You can directly ask me by personal e-mail (my time is limited, 
  but I'll try), 
* you can ask on freenode, channel #gentoo-dev-help,
* you can read the documentation (ebuild howto [5], devmanual [6]), 
* ...

I don't have this printer anymore so not me, but if anyone else wants to pick it up, feel free to do so...
