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 linuxprinting.org.

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...

The digest file....
The digest to go with the ebuild...I remembered it this time!!!
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
MAN, NOT JUST YOURSELF!
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 ;)
