Cups Server as Proxy?


I've got a little ARM-powered board running Debian. I can't get the damn Epson/avansys drivers to compile. If it did compile, it would make a daemon that processes the print jobs.

1. There are proprietary bits to the driver that are built under i386, I don't know if my make is choking because of this or not. I'm no expert, so any advice is great.

2. Epson's Linux drivers install on all the family machines, so is it possible to have the laptops send the job to the ARM board's cups server more or less pre-processed by the laptops? Is LPR the better tool in this instance?

Again, I'm new to linux printing, so any advice is great.

That libdtr *appears* to be built by the make. Maybe you can tell me how to figure that out one way or the other.

Try to find this library with find and check the date. If it's of today, it has probably been compiled with make.

I may be wrong, but it looks like those are the proprietary bits munging up my build.

Damn!
I won't ever buy Epson again. I believe HP has real drivers.
