I just spent two days getting my Epson R360 to work on FC 11. This was tricky since the R360 (and R380 R390) are not supported as standard, and I needed the pipslite package from Epson. The binary packages do not work on FC 11 ( give install: target `' is not a directory ) and fail to make the ppd file which is essential.
So.. we need to get the pipslite source package, fix the release number to match the source, install the lib packages it depends on, re-autoconfigure it (this picks up the changed libraries for FC 11), run ./configure; make dist; and then rpmbuild a proper binary package. Install the newly built rpm and use cups to install the printer using the
The source package is under the linux drivers on http://avasys.jp/eng/
(current source is pipslite_1.4.0-5.tar.gz). Beware... this file is double gzipped. You will need to ungzip before you untar the sources with the zxf options (into /tmp/build ).
Next - fix the release number, the PACKAGE_RELEASE number in file configure.in should currently be set to 5 not 4.
Install libgtk, gtk2, upgrade cups to the latest FC11 update:
yum install -y libgtk
yum install -y gtk2
yum upgrade -y cups
yum install -y cups-devel
The lib packages you will need are:
Follow the source build instructions on (remember PACKAGE_RELEASE is 5)
And good luck. I hope this saves you two days. Thanks to Epson/Avasys for supplying a driver and the rebuild instructions.
