Description conrad 2012-10-25 11:20:41 UTC
I am unable to install the CQue from the setup script provided by Canon as they have a dependency ( which I cannot resolve.

I see that an ebuild has been created a while back for german users (but the files required are no longer available) at the following url:

Is it possible for someone to please create an ebuild for CQue or BrightQ Pro?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce: CQue zip file
2.unzip ./setup
Actual Results:  
fails as it cannot find a required library (

Expected Results:  
Install the required software

Progress (or lack of) on my side described here:

Created attachment 477720 [details]
ebuild for =net-print/cque-3.0.5

I am interested. I attached a working ebuild for the current version that I cobbled together based on one for an older version.
